What will I be doing?

In these sessions we use nature as a resource for play, learning, confidence building and positive experiences with each child; who is introduced to the wonders of nature through all the seasons. The children enjoy the space and natural environment of the outdoors, with endless possibilities for learning and an abundance of resources. Taking learning outdoors offers many benefits, including being more physically active with greater freedom of movement. 

Risk is an active part of working in and moving through an outdoor space; and children are encouraged to take supported risks and understand the process of assessing risk by taking part in making sensible and informed choices about how to deal with unfamiliar situations such as exploring, climbing trees, using tools and using natural resources. A high ratio of adult to child is maintained to enable this style of learning to take place.

Nurturing important values such as:

 

Independence              Leadership               Teamwork              Community              Sharing              Kindness
