The Benefits of Outdoor Play & Learning
The ADO Mini-Explorers Preschool is focussed on outdoor play and learning.
The Benefits of Being Outdoors
Outdoor play and experiential learning offers fantastic opportunities and rewards for children and young people. It provides numerous benefits through fun, enjoyment, motivation and personal development. There is no substitute for using our natural senses by smelling, touching and listening to the natural world and wildlife around us.
There is recent research supporting and identifying links between standards of physical health and understanding how to connect and experience the natural environment. There is growing international evidence that natural environments are beneficial for psychological and emotional health. Children who have lots of opportunities for physical play are more likely to stay active and fit in the future.
Mini Explorers Preschool is fully risk assessed and our programme of activities and materials are age appropriate. Our staff are all Enhanced DBS checked and we work with and in conjunction with qualified youth workers. We have qualified First Aid staff on site at all times. Exposure to acceptable levels of risk in the security of supervised groups will support children to learn about the risk and challenges of growing up and life.
