How Nature Enhances Life

The Benefits of Nature

Spending time outside in the natural environment is not simply beneficial, it is crucial to ensure the proper growth and devlopment of children. There are innumerable opportunities offered by nature that simply cannot be found anywhere else. Nature has an astounding and bountiful array of things to offer that stimulate and support full learning, growth, and development, and to take advantage of all of this, we simply need to step outside. 

“To take nature and natural play away from children may be tantamount to withholding oxygen”(Louv, 2005, p. 108)
