The Natural World: “Children are biologically designed to be in it & therefore thrive by being in everyday contact with it. It provides the most generous & powerful learning environment, with great affordance for child-led learning & development.” Jan White
Sensory play encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. It helps to build nerve connections in the brain and encourages the development of language and motor skills.
“Children need the natural world, the intimate time in nature is essential for cognitive development.”
Children who play and spend time in nature have increased concentration, cognitive skills and the ability to block out distractions.
Our environmental yard boasts elements of natural grass, dirt, bark, wood, a timber bridge and a yarning circle to further enhance our embedded Nature Inspired program.
