Outdoor play enables children to enjoy the natural environment as they learn to seek out exercise, fresh air and activity. The child can also experiment, solve problems, think creatively, cooperate with others, etc., thereby gaining a deeper knowledge about themselves and the world. At TIPS, children are encouraged to spend a lot of time in the sandpit and a lot of time in the natural-surface play areas without any footwear. They also do the ‘8-walk’, walking along the shape of 8 on white pebbles. Neurologically, this activity has been found to induce better brain development. This also reduces stress and improves concentration.
