The children's enjoyment of the outdoor classroom encourages their movement and increases their physical development and capabilities. It helps to set up patterns for an active, healthy lifestyle.
The Outdoor Classroom
and Garden Project will teach the children the importance of nature by giving them the responsibility of caring for a garden and trees while having fun along with the educators guiding them.
We will continue to work with
our community partners in learning and development to help our children with special needs thrive with the innovative learning and development opportunities of
our Outdoor Classroom.

Building the outdoors into the curriculum for harmony and balance between indoor learning in the classroom and outdoor learning in the natural environment.
Each Outdoor Classroom is different in layout, based on the existing conditions of the location and design choices. It becomes a basic educational resource just like a library or computer room.
Teaching and learning are served best when an outdoor classroom is uniquely designed for the needs of the particular organization.
Building the outdoors into
the curriculum for harmony and balance between indoor learning in the classroom and outdoor learning in the natural environment will increase the potential for healthy development and inspired learning for
our Park Place children.
