Taking Learning Outside the Classroom

There are so many benefits to taking learning outside the classroom! For one, it allows students to get fresh air and move their bodies while they learn. Studies have shown that being in nature can have a calming effect on the mind, which is perfect for those who struggle with anxiety or ADHD.

Hands-On Learning

Outdoor classrooms provide opportunities for hands-on learning that simply can’t be replicated in a traditional classroom setting. When students are able to see, touch, and experience the material they’re learning about, they’re given more opportunities to retain the information.

Connecting With Nature

One of the best things about our outdoor classroom is that it allows students to connect with nature. When you’re surrounded by trees, flowers, and other living things, it’s impossible not to feel a sense of connection and wonder. We believe that this connection is essential for the development of empathy, compassion, and respect — all important qualities that we hope to instill in our students.
