Outdoor Space & Awning

Our students at London French Day Care Centre all have one thing in common: They love playing outside in our outdoor play space! Our Day Care Centre knows how important it is for kids to get outside and get active – the health and social benefits it can have on children is very important to us.

  • Children have the chance to run around and burn off energy
  • Children feel more relaxed and stress is reduced
  • Children have the chance to interact with their peers in a different environment
  • Children are able to interact with, and understand, the natural world
  • Children get their required Vitamin D intake which prevents bone problems, diabetes and heart disease
  • Children can develop risk assessment skills and hone their observation skills
  • Children have additional outlets for creative play
  • Children begin to understand the link between being active outdoors and physical health

 

There are numerous reasons why playing outside is beneficial to children and that’s why it’s so important for our daycare students to get outside and be active each day. We have outdoor awnings installed in our outside space in order to provide children and staff with the shade they need in order to protect themselves from the sun and stay cool when temperatures rise. If your child is enrolled in our daycare, please be sure to pack sunscreen and a hat for them once spring arrives. Please browse through our pictures of our much-loved outdoor space and be sure to visit our Pictures page to view the rest of our daycare facilities.
