Outdoor Learning -
Benefits and Risks
The most incredible outdoor play and learning opportunities occur as a result of well considered design, planning and construction and by the pedagogy and risk/benefit philosophy of educators.
The Gums is excited to feature as a case study site in this South Australian cross sector resource providing tools and information to help educators see the value of self-exploration, discovery and challenge for children’s development.

"Thank you and the team for the past 3 years, you have been nothing but amazing. As a first time mum and also a young mum, you have helped and taught me more than I could have asked for, My son has come so far and I am confident he is school ready with all the time and work you give to the kids.
Thank you again, I will definitely be using your services hopefully in the near future and will always highly recommend you to anyone."
