“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky”

Margaret McMillan

The EYFS suggests that being outdoors has a positive impact on children’s sense of well-being whilst supporting all aspects of their development. The statutory guidance stipulates that: “Providers must ensure that there is a balance of adult-led and freely-chosen or child-initiated activities, delivered through indoor and outdoor play[…]” With this in mind, at Lake View we make certain that we provide the perfect balance of free-play and adult-led opportunities both indoors and outdoors; allowing children the choice through free-flow.

I will understand:

Problem solving, self-exploration, decision making, number relationships, structures, complex vocabulary, healthy living, cause and effect, creativity, imaginative thinking and my natural world when I am big because I play outside whilst I am little.
