The Importance of Outdoor Play for Young Children

Learning outside the classroom helps support the development of healthy and active lifestyles.

It offers children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and also contributes to promote a sense of well-being.
 
 
Children need an outdoor environment that can provide them with places and space both upwards and outwards to explore, experiment, discover, be active and healthy, and to develop their physical capabilities.
 
The outdoor environment offers space and therefore is particularly important to those children who learn best through active movement. Very young children learn predominately through their sensory and physical experiences which supports brain development and the creation of neural networks.
 
As we continue to develop our outdoor learning environment we recognise that we need all the help and guidance we can get! So if you are a master gardener (or just enjoy working in the garden with your children), if you like building things, have an eye for design or simply would like to get involved, we welcome you! 
 
We will have our first annual COMMUNITY OUTDOOR CHALLENGE on Saturday 14th May, more information to follow but kindly keep the date.
