Quality outdoor time is essential to healthy development in children. Connecting children with nature helps them to develop a more positive attitude while being more active, absorbed and involved.

Outdoor Learning Environments (OLEs) give children the opportunity to:

  • develop fine and gross motor skills,

  • be physically active,

  • learn through observation,

  • build using natural materials, and

  • connect to the world around them.
