Being outside!

As the days get warmer and longer, we are drawn to the outdoors. In earlier times, it was quite natural for children to play outside. Today, groups of children are rarely seen romping around on their own. The bigger the world is perceived to be, the smaller the protected free spaces, the greater the need for protection and the fears of parents become. However, this also means that children lose the opportunity to discover the world on their own, unobserved and independent of adults with other children "among themselves".

Outdoor play offers our children many opportunities for development, which is why it is becoming more and more important to create spaces and opportunities for children to immerse themselves in free play outside.

Experience the world with all your senses!

Being outside is healthy! Exercise in the fresh air with lots of space is good for you!

In the Waldorf kindergarten and in the after-school care at Waldorf schools, free play in the garden or on a playground is part of the daily kindergarten routine. At any time of the year, in any weather, the kindergarten children and pupils can experience the outdoors, the elements, the warmth and cold with all their senses. They can dig in the sand and the earth, build caves, climb upwards, dig downwards, experience the seasons and the gardening and incorporate all this into their play. In this way, they experience the world at first hand - the best prerequisite for understanding, respecting and loving nature and thus wanting to protect the environment!

Advantages of outdoor play

  • Self-confidence is strengthened.

  • Children are more balanced after playing outside.

  • Children can give free rein to their urge to move.

  • Love for the environment and thus the basis for environmental protection can develop.

  • All motor skills are trained through play and self-perception is refined.

  • The children experience freedom to create and discover the world for themselves.

  • Social processes between the children can take place in a completely different way.

Especially in the garden, on the playground or in the countryside, the children can freely pursue their urge to move. All gross motor skills, such as running, building, balancing, hiding, climbing, jumping, etc. can be practised and refined.

Let us give the children these free spaces in which they can romp, romp, talk, play, experiment, discover the unknown, be amazed, experience fear and feel courage together, and offer them as much outdoor space as possible in addition to the time spent indoors and in classrooms. In this way, their basic needs are fulfilled, wonderful childhood memories are created and the overall development of their personality is supported! Therefore, it is up to us, the parents, educators and accompanying adults, to offer the children the possibility of
