Outdoor Learning in schools and local communities is being encouraged by Government and communities in general, as a positive educational and learning experience for kids. It’s important to get kids into the outdoor environment as much as possible and utilising any Nature Space for outdoor learning provides added opportunities for schools and communities beyond play experiences.
Here at NBP we support Outdoor Learning in many ways through providing:
Outdoor ‘classrooms’ in our designs
Cultural and learning elements within the Nature Space design
Loose Parts Play equipment and services
The outdoor classroom.
Outdoor Learning Design
As part of our Design service we can incorporate Outdoor Learning and Cultural Design elements into the Nature Based Play Space. This could be in the form of creating spaces as outdoor classrooms, to incorporating bush trails, local artwork, native plantings, geological forms, musical elements, and local cultural and historical pieces. These elements work together to make the Nature Based Play Space a wonderful learning and educational environment also.
NBP can also include more formal natural outdoor learning items such as:
sitting logs and seating
