We build the Best Education environment for children
And direct them to express themselves with clarity.
Outdoor play Area
Space to move and simple toys and resources that encourage a range of ways of moving are great for encouraging children to be physically active. Think beyond running and include resources to encourage hopping, jumping, skipping, sliding, swinging, rolling, balancing, throwing and more. Equipment might be more permanent like a slide, swing or trampoline, simply homemade like a box car, or utilise loose equipment such as hoops, skipping ropes, balls, bikes or scooters. Our recycled car tyre and decking plank balance beam (shown below) has been a long term favourite in our backyard.
Adding a space and tools for sand, water or mud play will not only make you all popular with the smallest family members, it will also support important brain development that occurs when children are engaged with experiences that activate any or all of their five senses. Whilst a permanent sand pit or mud pit is fabulous, thoughtful use of smaller tubs or vessels to hold sensory materials can work just as well.
