Healthy Ireland

As adults, we can appreciate that the natural outdoor environment is now more important than ever in children’s  lives, we acknowledge the many health  benefits of being outdoors  but we must also recognise the benefits for children’s play, learning and sense of well-being. During this phase of reopening, services have been looking at new ways to enhance and develop their outdoor space with the intention of maximising the time children spend outdoors. With this in mind, the video and information included in this resource aims to  provide your service with some useful guidance and practical tips as you plan and reflect on the possibilities for your outdoor environment. .
