Outdoor Learning

"Anything you can teach in an indoor classroom, can be taught outdoors, often in a way that is more enjoyable and meaningful for children."


At Oatlands we pride ourselves in our opportunities to engage with nature and the outdoor environment. It is underpinned by research that proves how taking learning outdoors can have a huge impact on learning and development. From encouraging children to take risks, develop communication and resilience to solving problems and other endless opportunities to explore, experiment and contextualise learning.

It improves children's mental health and wellbeing and inspires children to become happier and healthier and motivated learners.
