Families in our urban based centres often call our outdoor areas their “green oasis”.
SDN's outdoor spaces provide opportunities for children to enjoy themselves and have adventures. They’re safe environments for children to run, jump and yell, make mud cakes, and use their energy.
Outdoor spaces provide more than physical benefits. Even though children only play outside to have fun, they actually improve their thinking, social, and emotional skills. When they’re playing outside, they’re inventing games, learning about the world at their own pace, and figuring out social customs like turn taking.
These are just some of the reasons SDN invests in developing new, award winning outdoor spaces with natural designs that inspire children’s curiosity, physical play, and social play.
