April showers bring May flowers, or that’s at least what they say, right? Springtime for early childhood educators brings fresh new ideas to incorporate both inside and outside of the classroom. As the weather gets warmer, outdoor playtime becomes something to look forward to as children can explore the world waking up from its winter slumber and observe the changes going on around them. That is, if it is not raining outside. As a former preschool teacher, I can remember vividly watching the weather forecast each day to see what kind of day I was going to have. Whenever I would see rain in the forecast, my immediate thought would be “How was I possibly going to get a classroom of four-year old’s occupied all day AND get their wiggles out if we couldn’t go outside”?
We here at H&H Child Care Training Center have answered that question with our training Rainy Days: New Ways to Play to help teachers learn different active age-appropriate activities that can be used indoors to keep those littles happy AND active during these rainy Spring days.
