Being outside and connecting with nature is key to young children's learning and wellbeing, especially in a busy, fast-changing and digitalised world. Outdoors, children can more easily connect to their bodies, and learn about themselves and others and how to be in the world. They use their senses to explore, understand and become mindful of the earth and the people around them. But how can Early Years practitioners best support young children as they engage with nature, while also passing on the values about the future of the planet? Annie Davy presents tried-and-tested strategies that support the wellbeing and learning journey of children through mindfulness, with a focus on learning outdoors and connecting with the world. A Sense of Place is an easily accessible guide that will make outdoor learning more interesting and fun, while also supporting children's development of resilience and resourcefulness so that they can survive and thrive in the world as they grow.
