New Outdoor Play Area!
Our Pre-Kindy and Kindy garden has a new addition – a beautiful and adventurous nature playground!
At Mindarie Keys Learning Centres we strongly believe children learn best through play that engages them. Play spaces and the learning environment are often referred to as ‘The Third Teacher’ because of its potential to inspire and challenge children.
This space encourages play with elements of risk-taking. Appropriate risk-taking during play helps children improve their motor skills, balance and coordination and gain confidence in being physically active.
Children who are given opportunities to take risks in outside play develop confidence and are more likely to persist and persevere in problem solving in the playground as well as in their schooling endeavours.
As with any new play area, a risk assessment has been carried out to ensure there are no unnecessary risks, however there may be an increase in grazed knees and elbows over the coming weeks.
