At Kenmore Park we believe that children can derive tremendous benefit from taking part in regular nature play and learning outside of the classroom. This can help to bring many areas of development alive as they focus on real results and consequences. For that reason, the outdoors can have a significant impact on addressing areas of the Early Years Learning Framework/Australian National Curriculum.
Nature play also provides experiential opportunities allowing children to respond positively to challenges and responsibilities, to manage risk and to cope with change. Active outdoor learning and frequent nature play readily develops the learning skills of enquiry, experiment, feedback, reflection, review, communication, problem solving, an enterprising attitude and cooperative learning – to name only some of the benefits.
