Children have a natural fascination for wildlife and nature, and being outside is a perfect forum for them to engage in stick collecting, naming trees and flowers, bug hunting, taking note of seasons changes and using natural resources for science, knowledge and art purposes. At The Beanstalk, garden play happens on a daily basis and we have waterproof suits for wet days.
The freedom children experience outdoors is an extension of their learning environment. They can jump in the puddles, be boisterous and energetic without fear of disruption, they can climb, transfer and be imaginative and artistic on a large scale. It is important that children receive fresh air to improve physicality, and give themselves emotional and mental space, natural daylight and the freedom to be self-expressive.
