Playing outside is not just about letting out of steam. It is a vital part of childhood that helps children develop physical strength, coordination and balance. It also provides to learn and develop.

  • Social Skills – when they play in groups, they learn to communicate, share, collaborate and empathise with others.
  • Imagination and creativity – Playing is often open-ended and children need to be creative about what and how games are played.
  • Thinking and problem solving skills – as children assess risks and tackle new challenges they learn about having a go, persistence and perseverance and the success these attributes can bring.
  • Sense of self – as they master new skills and play with other children they improve competence and confidence in their own physical and social abilities.
  • Sense of connection – to place, to peers and to their local community and environment.
  • Self care skills – managing physical and social challenges helps children to learn about keeping themselves safe.
  • Studies have revealed that children who swim during their developmental years achieve several physical and mental milestones faster than their non-swimming counterparts. More so the type of instruction and sensory learning, kids are exposed to, translates almost seamlessly into the type of learning they’ll do in the classroom.

 

To support these broad learning outcomes, play spaces should include areas for active, free, quiet, social, imaginative, creative, exploratory and natural play. Here, at Green Apple we have the environment and infrastructure so that children can play and learn.
