description of the event
The prospect of planning nursery outings can seem daunting – even if it’s just a quick visit to the local park. There’s certainly a lot to think about in terms of safety and practicalities, but outings can be extremely beneficial to the children and so it’s worth making the effort to incorporate them into your nursery practice.
- Outings can help the children feel more rooted in their local community and make connections with the outside world
- Outings can stimulate curiosity and inspire new interests
- Outings can foster children’s social skills and self-confidence
- Outings can help promote healthy living (eg by encouraging walking and an enjoyment of the natural environment)
