What is outdoor learning?
Based on the successful Scandinavian approach to early years, put quite simply we encourage the children to spend as much time as possible outside. They learn about their environment through play and by exploring the world that they inhabit.
We embrace the vagaries of the British Weather and use every twist and turn as an exciting learning experience. Wind, Rain, Ice and even Snow provide endless opportunities to broaden the child’s knowledge. Seeing the seasons unfold is something that many children are no longer aware of, cooped up on front of TV or computer. But here at Farley we share these vital experiences with the children, who thrive on fresh air and wonderful stimulation.
This experience is not a duplicate of what is learnt inside but an extension of it, the children enjoy “free-flow” between the inside and outside space but invariably choose to be outside – it’s much more fun!
Please enjoy exploring our website but the way to get a proper understanding of what we can do for your child is to come and visit us at either Farley or Steeple Langford.
