Time spent in the outdoor environment is an important and integral part of our Kindy program at St Emilie’s. This term the Kindy children have been exploring the Pre-Primary play spaces.
Outdoor experiences provide children with the opportunity to be active, strengthen their fine and gross motor movement skills and explore their physical capabilities in new ways.
The children have loved the big open spaces to run, kick balls and engage in active play and exploration.
The Pre-Primary play equipment provides more challenges in climbing, balancing, coordination and motor planning.
Spending time outside playing has many positive effects on young children’s emotional development and builds their confidence too!
