Outdoor Play is very important to the growth and development of our children. It offers opportunities for our children to be active and develop social skills. For example, learning to take turns on the swings, making up rules to a game and following them as a group, teamwork, and building friendships. It also offers opportunities for learning about nature, the environment, and the world around us.
North Carolina State Law requires that children engage in Outdoor Play (Gross Motor) everyday as long as the weather permits.
