Preschool Outdoor Learning Environment
Outdoor Classroom for Preschool
“Learning occurs both indoors and out. Outdoor learning environments offer preschoolers opportunities to explore and learn,” said Jessica Full, Executive Director of the Barker Child Development Center. “here are many benefits to children and youth playing outside. Outside, children and youth can release energy, use loud voices, play vigorously, and engage in messy projects.” If the fundraising goal is met, Mrs. Full will purchase the supplies to enhance the current outdoor play area with an outdoor classroom. The PTO group has volunteered their time and equipment to put the area together once the supplies are purchased.
