ABC's and Apple Trees -- Loving and thoughtful care for your child

We try to spend as much time outside as possible!


This page is still under construction, but I had to add it to emphasize how important this is.

In December, 2017, I completed the  Outdoor Play course for Early Childhood Educators through Okanogan College. This caused me to reevaluate my program and work to spend even more time outside to increase the many benefits for children and for myself.

In 2019, we are tracking the number of hours we spend playing outside, trying for an average of 150 hours in each season - easy in summer, not as easy in winter, especially with the cold snap we are experiencing in the winter of 2019.  Nevertheless, the challenge is helping us to make it out even on chilly days and to stay out for longer!
