Play & Learn Christian Child Care Center is a non-profit Christian child care center provided by Gethsemane Lutheran Church
committed to providing quality child care and early childhood education to infant, toddler, and preschool aged children.

Outdoor Play

The Center will provide outdoor play each day in suitable weather for any toddler, preschool, and school-age child who is in attendance four or more consecutive daylight hours. Generally children can play outside when the temperature is between 25 and 90 degrees. However, outdoor play may be restricted due to weather factors including, but not limited to: extreme wind chill factor, high humidity or heat index, high ozone levels, high pollen counts, thunderstorms and lightening, high winds, precipitation, etc. If the weather is not suitable for outdoor play, classroom staff will be notified by a member of the administrative staff to keep the children indoors, and another type of large muscle activity will be provided in the atrium or classroom.

Child care staff members are responsible to watch for potential hazards while observing the children and shall actively supervise to prevent injury. Should an emergency situation arise which creates unsafe outdoor play conditions, classroom staff would be notified by the administrative staff to keep the children indoors and would be given other specific instructions to follow as necessary.
