Benefits of the Outdoor Classroom

Time in nature-based outdoor classrooms often sparks interest in learning that stimulate further inquiry indoors.

Children spend substantial periods of time outside, and it is easy and safe for them to get there; they are free to move easily between the indoors and outdoors.


Social distancing guidelines are easier to abide by with fresh air providing better ventilation.

Our outdoor space offers a balance of areas for physically active and less active play.

While outside, children frequently have the opportunity to initiate their own learning experiences and activities, with guides available to support them.
