Outdoor learning in an open-air classroom attracts all children, brings variety to their everyday scenery, and raises their participation in the planned activities. Workshops, open lessons, dramatic play, story time and parents’ visits make memorable moments to share and talk about.
Exercise and Sports
We recommend levels of physical activity for 3-6 years old children to be not less than 60 min per day. Physical activity is essential for the proper muscle development and the formation of coordination, endurance, speed, strength of movement. Academic advancement relies to a great extent to the child’s regular participation in physical exercise and sports activities. Furthermore, it provides valuable opportunities for interaction and social-emotional learning. At LightHouse Kindergarten we have incorporated age-appropriate sport games and activities in our main curriculum with the possibility for parents to additionally chose to sign up their child for a specific sport selected in our extracurricular program.
