Outdoor play is vital for young children, and we spend a significant amount of time outside at Turtle Rock.
Many of the developmental tasks that children must achieve—exploring, risk-taking,
fine and gross motor development and the absorption of vast amounts of basic knowledge—can be most
effectively learned through outdoor play. Children need the opportunity to explore the unknown,
the unpredictable, and the adventurous. From venturing off-campus for nature walks to taking advantage
of our natural playground, opportunities for wonder and discovery are limitless.
