If you support Cotlands, you’ll know that we love play-based learning. But did you know that we also love learning outdoors? There are many benefits to outdoor learning, including improving children’s health and helping them connect with nature.
That’s why we throw our support behind Outdoor Classroom Day; an annual global initiative to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play.
In 2019, over three million children worldwide took part. Cotlands children were among them. Our playgroups set up play stations outdoors with painting, puzzles, blocks, books and playdough. And at our Turffontein playgroup, even Sister Friedah got in on the fun and conducted her Road to Health check-ups outdoors.
Outdoor Classroom Day is celebrated on 21 May 2020. So plan something fun for the children in your life . . . and follow us on Facebook to see what we get up to!
