Outdoor Learning and Play

Healthy Enjoyable Sociable Eating at ‘The Willows.’

A short video produced by Galway Childcare Committee with the staff and children of The Willows Nursery in Abbeyknockmoy, Co Galway. This short video explores seed to plate; how the children and staff have developed their outdoor area to include planting, growing, harvesting and serving their own food. The early years’ educators are passionate about outdoor learning and caring for the environment and share their knowledge with the children in their everyday experiences. Their ethos of empowering children to ensure a healthy attitude to nutrition, enjoyable healthy eating and exercise is both inspiring and evident.
