The Paint Therapy Method – Supporting Big Emotions

Why do children need to go outside more? 

Outdoor learning can solve many educational issues, including speech and language issues and physical and mental health and help children socialise and communicate better.  Due to the change in how the modern-day child plays, more emphasis is needed on a more active curriculum. Children naturally need time to be in their imaginations, playing with friends and moving their bodies. Furthermore, more outdoor learning gives children a love for learning; by teaching outside in more playful ways, we encourage children to have a fit lifestyle while learning and educating.
