Learning Outdoors

Combining learning and the outdoors creates an environment that is flexible, open and where there is room for students to learn together, apart. Outdoors, children are healthier, happier and do better academically while getting much-needed nature exposure.

Designing your outdoor classroom may seem like a lot of new things to think about, but to us, it’s another day living the dream. With the help of our talented Design Team, your local Burke Representative is ready to help you build an outdoor classroom that will inspire exploration, activity and offer hands-on experience for years to come. Our outdoor spaces expand the meaning of classroom with options for music, fitness and educational games that help everyone learn.
