OUTDOOR PLAY

Playing outside gives young children the chance to explore the natural environment, take risks, take on new adventures, push their physical limits, learn new things, & have opportunities for bigger movements, it also has many health benefits. These are all necessary ingredients for building confident & successful children.

At HSEOC, we are committed to partnering with families to help all children be successful, so we make sure to create opportunities for children to explore outdoors daily, even in the winter, so they can get all the additional benefits of  outdoor play.
