Did someone say snow?
Winter weather has a number of benefits for children. Winter weather brings children opportunities to explore changes in their environment from sunny spells to autumn chills and snow days. Our children explore the outdoor areas are in all types of weather. Children burn off more energy when playing outdoors in colder weathers, children continue to receive vitamin D which also helps uplift moods and emotional wellbeing. Children experience new types of sensory play when collecting autumn leaves, playing in the snow and rain. Children learn to problem solve and think critically in a different environment. Outdoor play in winter weather also help build the immune system and children learn and practice independence skills through dressing up activities to wrap up warm!
