Benefits of outdoor play
There are many benefits to outdoor play. According to research (Fjortoft 2004; Burdette and Whitaker 2005), children who play outdoors regularly:
- Become fitter and leaner
- Develop stronger immune systems
- Have more active imaginations
- Have lower stress levels
- Play more creatively
- Have greater respect for themselves and others

We know from the schools we work with how important it is to get children outdoors. Outdoor classrooms help them to re-connect with nature and encourage them to play more outdoors.
