In years gone by, it was common for all kids to spend hours outdoors every day. But, as we all know only too well, things have changed. Playgrounds and parks are disappearing, homework is increasing, and parents are often wary of letting their youngsters out of their sight. While some kids can still enjoy the great outdoors, thanks to groups like Cubs and Brownies, it doesn't seem fair that many children don't get the chance.
What youngster doesn't dream of a private hideaway, located out in nature and far away from grown-ups' prying eyes? An Arctic Cabin may not whisk children away to a forest adventure, but it gives them the next best thing, and all without leaving the school grounds.
Schools should be more than just a place for kids to sit at desks and memorise facts - but it's not always easy to balance sparking creativity with learning. So maybe it's time to look beyond the classroom. Children respond well to being in different environments, so change their surroundings and you'll open up a whole world of possibilities to them. Young people are deeply influenced by their environment, so it's essential that the space around them reinforces and supports their education and developmental needs to the fullest.
