Early Years

Natural experiences of awe and wonder for babies and young children are critical foundations to embed a lifelong passion to explore, discover, question and appreciate nature. A variety of natural outdoor experiences for a young child is positive for their wellbeing, develops a sense of belonging to their world and builds a trusting connection with caring adults.

Children have a natural instinct to bond with nature and living things but they need the adults around them to provide opportunities and set an example to get outdoors in unstructured nature play from the very beginning of a child’s life.
