The Importance of Outdoor Time with School-Age Children

Here at Holly Tree, we prioritize health. This means we encourage educating our friends about healthy eating, healthy habits like hand-washing, but also a very important emphasis on exercise. While outdoor play is obviously necessary for exercise, it also has other benefits in child development even with school-age children. It helps with physical and social development as they continue to grow. We allow time for children to spend time outdoors, even if just to explore their surroundings. If you would like more information on the significance of outdoor time for your child, we have provided links below:
