Children have daily access to well-planned stimulating learning environments, inside and out.
These environments give children opportunities to be active and physical as well as quiet and reflective. Each classroom has designated areas to cover all areas of learning and these include role-play, writing, maths, construction, creative and reading areas. The early years environment, inside and outside is viewed as a whole, providing different areas where resources, materials and activities are freely and easily accessible.
It is important to develop learning opportunities outside as outdoor learning provides opportunities for: the acquisition of gross motor skills, taking risks, fostering a love of nature and the environment, large (and possibly messier) play which is not possible indoors, learning experiences suited to the outdoor environment and physical fitness.
