The physical aspect of outdoor learning is equally as important as the mental and brain development.
Children benefit hugely from outdoor space as it provides them with room to grow, explore, experiment, discover and develop their physical capabilities which in turn will lead to a healthy and active life.
Physical play is necessary with young children in order to strengthen their bodies, maintain a healthy weight and prevent illnesses. It is important that adults encourage active lifestyles from an early age so that a child is able to maintain that healthy living lifestyle throughout their lives.
Nursery, pre-school and schools are a perfect location for promoting outdoor activities as there are often extra-curricular activities that you can encourage children to join in with.
The sensory and physical experiences young children encounter outdoors supports brain development.
Our outdoor climbing frame is a great piece of outdoor play equipment ideal for promoting and encouraging physical activity.
