The combination of freedom and responsibility is particularly beneficial to children developing self esteem and confidence. Children safely experience activities such as climbing on logs and trees, finding mini beasts, using tools and enjoying camp-fires. We also venture out of nursery to enhance outdoor learning such as trails along the riverside, at the beach, local woodlands .
