Study Tour to the school playgrounds of Berlin

Berlin probably has the most amazing school playgrounds anywhere, driven by a strong belief in the importance of good external environments for children’s wellbeing and learning. You can get a feel for these amazing spaces by looking at the case studies and images here.

Following a successful study tour to Berlin last June, Grounds for Learning is hoping to run another tour in June 2013, provisionally from 12th – 15th June. More details here.
20 participants from the June 2012 tour have taken forward practical initiatives across Scotland to improve school and early years outdoor spaces following the visit.

“I had a fantastic trip and was really grateful for the opportunity to see the fantastic work going on in Berlin. I have lots of ideas and I am really excited about taking these forward and hopefully starting to influence real change in our school and nursery grounds.”
