Why is outdoor play important for your child’s growth?
We play outdoors every day in both of our developmentally appropriate play yards. (Approximately 35 minutes in EACH yard). Large Muscle Play’s purpose is to allow children to move and choose activities that will continue to develop the muscles in their legs, arms and torso – improving balance, coordination and developing physical confidence. These activities give children the opportunity to develop friendships and stimulate language as well. Many of a child’s developmental tasks—exploring, risk-taking, fine and gross motor skills and the absorption of vast amounts of basic knowledge—can be most effectively be learned through outdoor play.
