Outdoor learning program
The outdoor environment is an area that stimulates and encourages children’s learning in a variety of ways.
Chatterbox has thoughtfully designed each outdoor space to ensure the children are given the opportunity to explore the world around them and learn about the natural environment and all that it has to offer. The children delight in investigating the sand, mud and dirt as well as utalising the natural materials within the playground to create their own imaginary scenes of fun and adventure.
Playing outdoors is wonderful exercise for a child that promotes well-being and wholesome physical development. Children are naturally drawn to active play and it is vital for all children’s development, allows them to explore their environment, and develops muscle strength and coordination, and gain self-confidence. Experiences which are offered indoors can also utilised outside. For example, creating spaces which allow for relaxation, dramatic play, music, construction and creativity.
