Being outdoors has a positive impact on children's sense of well-being and helps with all aspects of children's development. It offers children the opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than indoors. It gives them first hand experiences and contact with the weather and the changes in seasons.
Outdoor play gives children the freedom to explore, use their senses and be physically active.
At Abbey Mill Childcare we recognise the importance of outdoor play on children's learning and development and all the benefits that are on offer. Our recently refurbished outdoor space provides a safe, secure, enriched outdoor learning environment for all our children and outdoor play is encouraged throughout the week.
