Pre-k Outdoor Play
School: Immaculate Conception
The positive effects of having an outdoor playground go beyond the obvious one - physical exercise. Playgrounds provide so many essential experiences for children, such as socializing, problem-solving, reasoning, risk-taking, and motor skills. Play is the nucleus of early childhood education. At Immaculate Conception, our full-day preschool program is relatively new. At this time, we do not have enough age-appropriate equipment for our little ones to play with outside. We are looking to create a safe and age-appropriate play space for our preschoolers to be able to reap the benefits of outdoor play.
