The Bayview Treehouse Preschool Outdoor Program officially launched in 2014 and has been expanded this year to three mornings per week.
Each week we meet, most often at Jericho Beach, and here the children learn to build shelters, tie knots, climb, explore and play in natures natural playground which provides a setting for natural play in the invigorating fresh air. Children are delighted to sing nature songs, create eco art and learn about the vegetation and animals that surround them. Rain or shine, we dress for all weather.
Parents are welcome to drop off their children and pick them up or remain with them.
Research has shown that a child’s sense of creativity, confidence, independence and tolerance thrives naturally in an outdoor setting. Free, non-associated play differs from what children do indoors. This type of free play has been found to develop children’s motor skills and allows them to make decisions and solve problems, thanks to the more variable and less-structures outdoor environment.
