Abstract

The impact of nature and the outdoors on a child’s development begins within the first year of life. By the time children are ready to begin regular early childhood education (ECE), such as daycare or kindergarten, they have become highly adept at receiving information from their environment through their senses. Once this information reaches a young child’s brain, it is processed through a series of cognitive systems that are experiencing rapid development, through a “use it or lose it” process known as synaptic pruning.
