The Benefits of Outdoor Play at KSS Preschool

Outdoor Play at KSS Preschool

Spring’s Nearly Here! It’s Time to Learn Outdoors.

Good old fresh air won’t cure the coronavirus, but it significantly reduces the risk. The CDC says time spent outside is the “safer choice.” So with another San Francisco spring on the horizon — when the California poppies bloom and the Presidio hums with birds — there’s no better time to enroll your little one in KSS Immersion Preschools for outdoor play.

What are the Benefits of Outdoor Play?

We understand the concerns parents have about COVID-19. That’s why we’ve already implemented a broad range of hygiene, screening, physical distancing, and drop-off and pickup measures that keep our students safe without compromising the educational and social benefits of Spanish language immersion. But now, as the weather heats up, we’re encouraging more outdoor play.

The benefits are limitless:

  • Children prosper in an outdoor learning environment where they can be active, socialize with other students, and learn about nature.
  • Children improve their physical health when outdoors.
  • Children will develop language immersion skills in a safe, social distancing-compliant outdoor space that encourages creativity and interaction.
  • Children can also reduce stress and improve their mental health when outdoors.
  • Our trained instructors monitor children outdoors at all times, providing you with peace of mind.

Even when our students spend time outdoors, we will still implement all of our COVID-19 precautions, such as cleaning and physical distancing.

Combining a quality early childhood education with a Spanish immersion program gives our students a leg up in their education and their lives. For parents who value multilingualism – beginning their child's formal learning with an immersion preschool is a natural fit. During this time, children’s brains are hard-wired for language learning and pick it up naturally. Bilingual children expand their awareness of the world and gain significant cognitive benefits. For students from Spanish-speaking homes, a Spanish-immersion education helps keep the family’s cultural heritage alive. There are many benefits of multilingualism and we are proud to support our students on their journey.
