The facts about nature play speak for themselves
Math and language scores increase directly in proportion to contact with nature.
Contact with dirt has been proven to increase healthy immune response, (decrease irritable bowel and gut based chronic disease) while reducing stress, increasing focus, and attention spans.
Catastrophic injuries are lower in sensory rich, natural environments when compared to plastic post and platform playgrounds.
Vandalism, aggressive behaviour, and bullying rates are all reduced in direct proportion to the amount of tree canopy and contact with nature. The more green, the better the result.
Exposure to natural environments improves children’s cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning and observational skills
Real play. Real results. Really bright futures.
At Bienenstock, we believe that children need more natural play – real play – spaces that offer full sensory experiences for every child of every ability. That belief is at the core of everything we do and everything we offer.
We want to improve outcomes for your teachers, parents and children. That’s why our work is evidence-based, and results driven. Among the many benefits, natural playgrounds are proven to increase time spent playing, engage all senses and reduce bullying, aggressive behaviours and serious injury rates.
Our goal is to make it easy for everyone to have a universally accessible playground that connects kids to nature, while also promoting optimal child development in schools, and child-care facilities. Let’s work together to design and build a natural play environment that will support your core offering to students and parents.
