Outdoor Play

Outdoor play offers unique learning experiences which cannot be provided indoors. It is an ever-changing space that provides new sights, sounds, and sensations. It offers space and freedom for children to explore and investigate, imagine and create, and to try out new things. Creativity and imagination can thrive outdoors. Socially, outdoor play serves as an interactive platform where children learn important interpersonal skills. Whether negotiating the rules of a game, taking turns, or collaborating on a shared objective, these social interactions contribute to the development of crucial social skills, such as cooperation, communication, and conflict resolution.

At Pennies Day Nurseries, we value outdoor play. Outdoors, firemen can put out the fire, picnickers can get dressed up, pack their bags, and go for a picnic, horses can gallop, and aeroplanes can fly.
In terms of emotional well-being, outdoor play provides a space for children to release pent-up energy, reduce stress, and experience a sense of freedom and joy. It is a natural outlet for emotional expression and a means to develop resilience in the face of challenges encountered during play.

Furthermore, outdoor play nurtures imagination and creativity by offering open-ended spaces for exploration. Natural settings encourage pretend play, imaginative scenarios, and problem-solving, fostering creativity and critical thinking skills.

In essence, encouraging and facilitating outdoor play is not merely a recreational pursuit but a holistic investment in the well-rounded development of children, contributing to their physical health, cognitive abilities, social skills, emotional resilience, and environmental awareness.
