The Benefits of Outdoor Education the EYFS

The benefits of outdoor education in the early years are endless. Being outside allows children to express themselves freely and unlike an indoor classroom, there aren’t any space constraints meaning children can jump, shout and explore to their hearts content. The sense of freedom playing outdoors brings is fantastic for a child’s development, both physically and mentally.

All children should have daily access to outdoor education as it provides a wealth of opportunities for learning and development. Learn how to support your children to become confident, resilient and emotionally intelligent from being outdoors. Inspire your staff to view the outdoor environment as an equal learning environment to the indoor classroom.

Do you want to empower your staff to create stimulating, holistic session plans that make the most of your outdoor space, no matter it’s size?
