Inspiring Outdoor Play
Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog page. As the weather turns warmer we at Little Lambs have been spending a lot more time outside. In Madoc, Stirling, Trenton, Frankford and Belleville our providers have been visiting parks, going on nature walks, visiting community centres, creating memories in their own backyards and so much more.
Mental wellbeing is not just a topic for adults. Children can suffer from "winter blues" also. Our outside time is limited during our cold/dark Canadian winters. This wanes on everyone. The days are now longer and being outside more just makes everyone feel better. After a long winter bundling children in snow suits it's nice to send them out the door with some sunscreen and a hat. Moods are higher, naps are easier and tummies are hungrier.
I thought now would be a perfect time to write a post to inspire creative outdoor play. Images sourced from Pinterest.

I can't think of anyone who don't like the outdoors. If there's anyone who claims they don't like it, it's possible they just haven't been to a nice place or they don't have anyone to spend it with. I can tell from experience that a place no matter how scenic will seem gloomy to anyone who does not have someone special to share it with. The person does not even have to be with you physically. Sometimes the memory is enough to keep us going. The thought that one day you will be able to visit this place with this person is enough.

absolutely, human connection and relationships play a major role in our programs.

Early Years at Home
When we refer to home we refer to a feeling of welcome, family, comfort and belonging. Licensed home child care offers the feeling of "home" with the benefits of early years pedagogy.
