Experiences of the natural world are essential elements in all Early Years settings. The experiences help babies and children to look and listen, to touch and feel, and to enjoy being out of doors. The activities described in this book are all appropriate to children from birth to five (and beyond) and we have linked them to the developmental stages of the curriculum guidance for Birth to Three and the Foundation Stage (soon to become the Early Years Foundation Stage)
