Landscapes That Promote Early Years Education

The early years are vital to a child’s development, and getting the opportunity to play outdoors gives them the chance to grow and develop a number of skills.

Although play areas can be considered just a place for children to just get out of the house/classroom environment, if utilised correctly outdoor playing can provide the base upon which kids can get increase develop in the following areas:

  • Physical - Playing outdoors in a well thought out landscape with activities will help build stronger bodies and increase level of fitness; improve their balance, flexibility and coordination.
  • Communication - Playing in a communal area with their peers children will develop their conversational levels and social interactions. This can be as simple as just chatting about what they are doing or learning about sharing, compromise and the initial beginnings of social conventions. This can also be an environment where children can learn about manners, politeness and also to learn to develop a sense of being able to fend for themselves.
  • Education - By being outside children can learn about the environment, the landscape, animals and insects, and the weather. By having designated areas children could have quiet reflective time, perhaps to just read or draw; or alternatively vibrant areas that help promote a child’s imagination, by creating a pirate adventure or an explorer. Picnic areas can be a great way to help children taste and learn about new foods.
