Dr. Margaret McMillan was a pioneering educator who strongly advocated for the importance of outdoor play and educational experiences for children. She argued that providing children with opportunities to explore their environment firsthand was essential for their physical, emotional, and cognitive development. She also believed that outdoor activities could help to improve educational outcomes, reduce behavior problems in the classroom, and ultimately, contribute to children’s long-term well-being. McMillan argued for the importance of free play, where children are allowed to explore their outdoor environment with minimal adult intervention. She believed that through natural exploration, children would develop the skills necessary to problem-solve and think independently. McMillan also encouraged adults to guide children's play and provide them with the guidance and resources to use their outdoor experience to its fullest potential. McMillan’s beliefs had a strong formative effect on the way educators and parents think about the outdoors and its importance to childhood development. Today, many educators and childcare providers strive to provide children with enriching outdoor experiences that promote physical health, creativity, communication skills, and independence.
