Science is within Nature.
Young children need to be offered information what creative thinking and problem solving. Bayley& Featherstone(2013)believe that nature is foundation stage of play starting with outdoor environmenst. Children need opportunities to discovery nature and all it holds in outdoor play. Parents can support this learning by using conversations about what can be seen outdoors. Looking closely at the leaf, the rock and the caterpilla and examining these through, touching and feeling are a wonderful experience using all their senses.Giving children opportunities for personalised play and making sure it is flexible with plenty of time to enjoy their environment is important. Watching your child discover nature lets you know what they are interested in. Try new locations like the Botancial Gardens in Ashmore, the beach, or your local park for different experiences.
