Every Wednesday our pre-school children get suited and booted for a morning of child-led outdoor play in our wilderness garden.
Taking learning outdoors offers every child an opportunity for new and exciting experiences. Natural and unstructured environments, such as our wilderness garden, challenge learning and inspire our children in unique ways. Outdoor play promotes negotiation skills, the ability to manage risk and opportunities to build trusting relationships with both adults and peers. As a result it develops children’s self awareness and self esteem; something we feel very passionately about here at Poppnis! All whilst having fun building and weaving dens, jumping in muddy puddles with their friends, drinking hot chocolate and much more!
