Outdoor learning has long been a method used in schools, but has it ever been managed well? No doubt, it is hard work to take the learning outside because of the weather and seasons. However, it’s also the weather and seasons that make it so fabulous too. There are many worthwhile institutes that can help make you more knowledgable in the area such as IOL. https://www.outdoor-learning.org/
There are also many other wonderful charities motivating schools, nurseries and teachers to educate children on the environment, reduce waste, look after nature and to go outside more. Encouraging early years children to be more environmentally friendly at school is a great start into a promising future for our world. By going outside more we are encouraging children to take a lot more notice of their environment and the nature within it.
