What is Play-based learning?

Play-based learning is a teaching approach that involves playfulness, child-directed outcomes, and a certain degree of adult guidance to help keep focus towards a general learning objective. Outdoor Play looks to supplement play-based learning with the proven benefits of being outdoors. Thus, our activities aim to meet the following criteria:

  • Playful

  • Child-directed

  • Some adult guidance

  • Learning Objective

  • Occur Outdoors

This doesn't mean that our activities have to happen outdoors, and we encourage parents to continue the fun all the way home and up until a well deserved bedtime!
