Beneficial outcomes for pupils

There  are many benefits of having an outdoor garden area/pets corner (Florence farm) for children and staff.

 

Physical

  • increases joint movement and improves recovery time
  • maintains or increases motor skills
  • provides motivation to move more, stretch farther, exercise longer
  • releases endorphins (oxytocin) that have a calming effect

 

Well-being

  • helps children focus better
  • improves literacy skills
  • provides non-stressful, non-judgmental environment
  • increases self-confidence, reduces self-consciousness

 

Mental Health:

  • lifts spirits and lessens depression
  • decreases feelings of isolation and alienation
  • encourages communication
  • provides comfort
  • increases socialization
  • reduces boredom
  • lowers anxiety
  • helps children overcome speech and emotional disorders
  • creates motivation for the client to recover faster
  • reduces loneliness
