At Best friends Childcare we actively encourage children to use the outdoor space we have. Being outside in the garden has many benefits, not only does it encourage children to physically exercise but it is also a place where they can learn to play appropriately. We encourage children to widen there fine and gross motor skills whilst outdoors as well as learning how to respect the environment. We often have purpose built activities set up in the garden to encourage learning through play. Aside from the above benefits our Garden is also a place to have fun, be free and enjoy being children.
