Experience the Power of Outdoor Education

In today's digital age, it's crucial for children to maintain a deep connection with nature and explore the world beyond screens. At Corbett Preparatory School of IDS, we value the immense benefits of outdoor education for the holistic development of young minds. Our comprehensive outdoor education program, brought to you by Global Learning Preschool, offers students the opportunity to learn and grow in a natural environment.

Why Outdoor Education?

Outdoor education goes beyond traditional classroom settings and provides students with hands-on learning experiences. It enhances their cognitive, physical, and social-emotional development, fostering a sense of curiosity, resilience, and environmental stewardship.

1. Immersive Learning Experiences

Our outdoor education program creates immersive learning experiences by allowing students to interact with the natural world directly. Through observations, experiments, and exploration, they develop a deep understanding of various scientific concepts, ecological systems, and environmental sustainability.

2. Physical Health and Well-being

Spending time outdoors and engaging in physical activities has numerous health benefits for children. It helps build their gross motor skills, enhances cardiovascular fitness, boosts immunity, and reduces the risk of obesity. Our outdoor education program includes activities such as hiking, gardening, team sports, and yoga, focusing on both physical and mental well-being.

3. Problem Solving and Critical Thinking

When children participate in outdoor activities, they encounter real-life situations that require problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Whether it's building a shelter, navigating through a trail, or identifying plant species, students learn to analyze, assess risks, make decisions, and work collaboratively to find solutions.

4. Social and Emotional Development

Outdoor education provides an ideal platform for developing social skills, fostering empathy, and strengthening relationships. Collaborative activities within a natural setting encourage teamwork, communication, and respect for others. Students learn the importance of cooperation and develop a sense of responsibility towards their peers and the environment.

5. Environmental Awareness and Conservation

By connecting with nature, students gain a deep appreciation for the environment and develop a sense of responsibility towards its conservation. Our outdoor education program instills environmental values, teaching students the significance of sustainability, resource conservation, and the impact of their actions on the planet.
