Nature Play by DP™
Outdoor spaces within childcare centres, preschools, schools, and local parks can be many children’s primary experience of outdoor play.
At Direct Projects we aim to create play spaces in education institutions that increase opportunities for nature and risky play in outdoor play environments.
A quality play space design can improve socialisation, problem solving, focus, self-regulation, creativity, self-confidence, boredom and improve risks of injury. Outdoor play spaces are important for promoting children’s wellbeing and development.
