Children need to be outside.
Outside, children are more physically active, connected to nature and develop community connections. As adults in children’s lives, our job is to provide the time, space, materials and most of all permission to play outside in child care, school and our communities. Get Outside and Play can help you support your educators, teachers and families to get outside and play!
