Why do we spend so much time outdoors?

We spend lots of time

learning outside the classroom

at Samakee, but why?

 

 

Evidence repeatedly shows connecting with nature and the wilderness works. Playing and learning outdoors is good for social and emotional development improves self-awareness, and makes children more co-operative. 

 

 

 

Studies show that children will be smarter, better able to get along with others, healthier and happier when they have regular opportunities for play outdoors.

There is also scientific evidence that the wilderness can reduce hyperactivity and has a soothing effect on children.

 

 

 

 

 

At Samakee we want children to explore the wonders of the wilderness and connect with the natural world.

There is a natural simplicity to nature that is more tactile and tangible than the classroom. Being in nature builds children’s confidence and builds character.

Dozens of studies from around the world show regular time outdoors produces significant improvements in learning ability, creativity and mental, psychological and emotional wellbeing.

 

 

 

Play in the outdoors boosts problem-solving skills, focus and self-discipline. Emotional benefits include reduced aggression and increased happiness.

“Children will be smarter, better able to get along with others, healthier and happier when they have regular opportunities for free and unstructured play in the out-of-doors,” concluded one authoritative study published by the American Medical Association in 2005.

Why not ask your child about their time outdoors today?
