Outdoor Learning and Nature School
Research shows that children have a greater capacity for learning when they are outdoors exploring the outside world. The outdoors has a calming effect on children and also has the added benefit of building a healthy immune system. Children playing and learning in the outside environment appear more active, absorbed and motivated, playing more purposefully, they also develop a positive attitude to learning.
