Our fully fenced playground is located beside our building, divided into 2 areas. One for toddler aged children and the other for preschoolers. Each classroom has their own scheduled time in the morning and afternoon.
The children have the opportunity to pick from a variety of activities such as riding bikes and scooters, playing hockey or soccer, sand play, building, dramatic play, and being involved in group games.
No matter what the weather, the children are monitored to ensure no one is feeling adverse effects from the weather conditions. Water is always available for the children to drink while at the playground
In the event we cannot go outside due to extreme weather conditions. the children will have the opportunity to participate in gross motor activities in their classrooms.
These activities may include:
Riding toys Tunnels
Balls Parachute fun
Balance beam Bowling
Bean bag toss Group games
Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.
But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.
