Children need to feel they belong, and we are privileged to be able to create a culture where children feel loved and included, and where families feel involved and welcomed. The level of nurture and responsiveness that a child receives from their primary caregivers affects how they cope later in life. Experience of secure attachment enables children to trust others, and builds confidence, self-regulation, and empathy, as well as the ability to support others. Children's early experiences influence their views on outdoor play, and if a parent obviously feels uncomfortable outside in nature, a child will pick up on this. Children are much more likely to thrive and feel confident when there's a strong partnership between parents and a setting, and parents are the experts on their own child.
