Childhood outdoor environments: Places for play, learning and wellbeing
Chapter 5 focuses on evidence about the benefits of children’s outdoor learning and it raises questions such as – what do we now know about quality outdoor spaces for young children? What evidence can be shared to encourage children’s outdoor learning? This chapter will develop educators’ confidence in how to map children’s sociodramatic play in an outdoor playspace and how to use biophilic design principles.
