Promoting natural outdoor learning environments

Welcome to this special fact sheet dedicated to providing practical information about creating natural play environments. We know that current research indicates that there are overwhelming benefits for children when they are able to have free play in a natural environment. Children experience risk taking, problem solving, learn how to cope with life, learn how to face challenges, develop a sense of belonging and can begin to understand the world around them. A natural environment contributes to children's overall physical health and emotional wellbeing.
