Outdoor Education

Outdoor learning in any season is an engaging and super beneficial thing to do with your children. Not only does it increase physical activity and improve mental health, but it also provides connections to nature, reinforcement of observational skills, expansion of imaginative & creative play, awareness of the change of seasons, increasing inquiry-based learning, and development of a sense of wonder.

Spending time outdoors boasts many benefits to a child’s overall well-being. It has been proven to reduce stress and even increase focus and effective learning for some children. Read more about the benefits of outdoor education below:
