Outdoor Play

November 30, 2020

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.


UPDATE: The Durham PreK Governance Committee voted on August 19, 2021 to waive parent fees for the 2021-2022 school year. The Durham PreK Application is still open! Click here to access the application information and materials.
