Download Louise Kool Outdoor Classroom Planning Guide for Child Care, Schools and Daycares

Over 70 pages of great ideas, real world examples, strategies, inspirations, and tips for realizing an Outdoor Classroom.

Broken out by different learning areas, this guide will help you plan and create a new outdoor learning area or develop an existing space for STEM, literacy, creative arts, construction as well energetic play.

 

Children learn best through hands-on manipulation of materials and from having meaningful experiences.  

Don’t let your kids lose out on the four seasons of learning.  Plan for materials that can deliver experiential learning not just when the sun is shining.  And invest in quality that can stand up to Canadian extremes – sun, rain, freeze, thaw. 

Here you’ll find ways to transform your outdoor space into an outdoor classroom.
