Opinion: why children (and adults) need the great outdoors
It’s long been established that spending time outdoors, exploring and experiencing the natural world, can benefit our physical and mental health.
For children, connecting with nature has a hugely positive impact on their development in many ways, particularly their inclination and ability to learn. Outdoor environments offer endless sensory stimulation and possibilities for play, at Maggie & Rose we take every opportunity for our little ones at our nurseries to explore our secret gardens and roof terraces, with pre-schoolers also enjoying Forest School and excursions to neighbouring parks.
