Visit our Nature Play Precinct -The Third Teacher!
Link into our Reggio Emilia philosophy added with current research clearly shows that natural environments like our outdoor play precinct are hugely beneficial to students in many ways. Playing outdoors is important for developing capacities for creativity, symbolic play, problem solving and intellectual development. Outdoor play has clear physical benefits for developing children including helping children to acquire gross motor skills, eye-hand coordination and helping to prevent obesity. Furthermore, natural environments give staff members opportunities to teach children about caring for the world in which we live. Our students see plants grow and change throughout the year helps children to understand and learn more about nature. Now that is the spirit of Creation!
