Infant Toddler Program Outside Time

Children are encouraged to explore and engage in activities that use their gross motor skills and develop their social skills. Climbing, jumping, rolling, crawling, running, digging, water play and riding toys are some of the activities that the children experience while outside.

In the summer months the children enjoy planting flowers along the fences, picnic snack times and water activities. In the fall and winter months the children enjoy splashing in the puddles when it rains and making snow angles when it snows. Prior to venturing outdoors the children are bundled warmly in the winter and thoroughly sun screened in the summer for their comfort and safety. "Rain or Shine", Children at Leap Forward Childcare are provided opportunities for fresh air, an open space to run, laugh and play twice daily.
