Outdoor play at Cowgate Under-5's Centre


The source of all good lies in play. - Friedrich Froebel

Using the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel, Cowgate Under 5's Centre in Edinburgh takes a holistic approach to promote children's learning through spontaneous, creative play. Through this, children are encouraged to develop autonomy and self-confidence. Playing with Outlast blocks, children at Cowgate have given adults an insight into their potential for learning and creativity.
