Primary Playground Fun

29 May 2024

In 2019, a study was conducted to evaluate the impact of nature on children's learning. The largest study of it's kind, 451 children participated in outdoor activities. The findings were incredible. 79% of children reported increased feelings of confidence, 84% of children felt more capable of trying new things, 79% reported better relationships with classmates (Reference: Institute of Child Psychology). 
In the Primary School playground at Middle Cove, nature is at the forefront. Fresh air, green space, natural materials (like rocks!) allowed these Class 3 students' imaginations to run wild.
