The benefits of outdoor play for children’s development are extensive! Outdoor play directly impacts a child’s weight, physical strength, and ability to fight off illness. Not only that, but kids who spend a lot of active time outdoors in their early years generally continue to be more active as they age. Here at The Kids Next Door we encourage outdoor play, it helps develop a healthy attitude about maintaining an active lifestyle.
Our 2020 newly built shaded Playground, provides a safe engaging place where KND kids can take a break from screens and indoors and get some fresh air, sun, and run around!
All students enrolled at KND are required to have weather appropriate clothing.
In the Summer: Swimsuits, Sunscreen, and a Towel
In the Winter: Snow Pants, Jackets, Winter Boots, Hats, and Gloves
Staying inside is not an option when it is outside time!
Organized sports or a water balloon fight, the options are endless when we have a large open field!
