We are well into the fall/winter season and this year many of us have had a new and valued appreciation for the great outdoors and enjoying nature. Family Day staff across our programs have certainly taken advantage of opportunities to be outdoors. This fall, we have strengthened our commitment to outdoor education and, as demonstrated on our social media feeds, staff are working hard to keep children happy and engaged outdoors in nature. It all certainly looks like fun! Health experts remind us about the benefits of the outdoors for everyone. They include fresh air, physical activity, connecting with nature and, of course, the benefits to our mental health.
Highlighted in this edition of FOCUS you can find out more about Family Day’s commitment to outdoor education, including hearing about how we have engaged families on this journey.
