Outdoor Play Ground
The Great Outdoor Play Area is as beautiful as it is fun and healthy for the children. A variety of tall trees anchor the playground giving it a natural canopy in rain or shine. The concrete path that circles around the playground is most often a highway for the children “driving” their trikes. Along the way, the children can stop to fish from the real row boat, take a trip on the teeter-totter plane, stop and visit the lion statue on the brick patio, get in some rock climbing and a good ride down the slide before arriving at home to do chores!!!
Outside light triggers the synthesis of vitamin D which is vital to the immune system among other health benefits.
