The importance of outside play in early years can’t be underestimated and the benefits of learning outside the classroom are endless. Children at Cambridge @ Dairy Farm look forward to outdoor learning as being outside, our children get to express themselves freely without any space constraints. Learning in an outdoor environment allows children to interact with the elements around us and helps them gain better understanding of the world we live in. They can experience animals in their own surroundings and learn about their habitats and life cycles. The sense of freedom playing and learning outdoors allows children to make discoveries by themselves as they can develop their own ideas and understand what they can do by themselves, and develop a ‘can do’ attitude, which will act as a solid foundation for future learning.
