Our Barkerend Nursery is completely in love with anything involving nature and the outdoors. The benefits of activities and experiences such as nature walks to the local pond are limitless with the children more engaged in their play and learning than ever before.
Being outdoors, engaging and discovering new things about the world around us not only supports and promotes all seven areas of the EYFS but also supports the holistic development of a child; nurturing their health and wellbeing.
The more children can actively learn and critically think while in the outdoors, the wider the scope of learning and development. For this reason, it is important that the outdoors environment is used to its full potential with rich learning experiences and opportunities and is used for more than just a space to run around for 10 minutes.
They always explore their local parks and nature surrounding their local area, the children have a great deal of fun doing so too.
