Outdoor sensory equipment for preschool
Immaculate Conception Catholic School
There are endless benefits to having a safe and inviting outdoor area for preschool children to play and engage. Children develop social skills, muscles, coordination, and they grow in happiness and immunity. This year, we are looking to add to our outdoor playground with some toys that will give our brains a workout, as well as our bodies: an outdoor drum kit and a teeter totter. Both of these items will help to improve sensory skills, as well as offer opportunities for hands-on learning about physical forces and concepts. The drum kit will provide the gift of music outdoors. Research shows that music can reduce anxiety, and can improve mental alertness and memory. Music has been proven to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. The teeter totter will be a tool to assist with vestibular training. The experience of gravity activates the vestibular system by helping to maintain equilibrium as we shift from one position to the next. And it is fun!
