Toddlers out side this fall

11/30/2013
In the Toddler room, we are committed to spending a portion of every day outdoors (as weather permits). 

Regular contact with nature has shown to have many positive effects on children’s intellectual, as well as physical development. Having unstructured play time outside also develops a sense of creativity and adventure. For many children, being able to connect with nature helps provide a sense of calm and of being part of a larger community. These feelings can lead to lower levels of stress (especially in children) and fewer behavior challenges. Spending free time outside also appears to be connected to an increase in children’s critical thinking and in their ability to handle and resolve problems.
