The Benefits, Tips and Strategies for Yearlong Recess

The benefits of recess for children have been widely reported. Recess improves students’ physical, mental and emotional health and enhances their learning opportunities. But when is it too cold to go out to recess? And, when necessary, how can schools successfully facilitate active indoor recess? Schools struggle to implement active recess programming during the winter months for a variety of reasons. Join us for this one-hour webinar to learn about the benefits of prioritizing recess, learn tips and strategies to provide yearlong quality recess programming, and get connected to useful resources for your school. The webinar is at no cost and clock hours will be offered. This is a Fit to Learn professional development event for principals, presented by Healthy Schools Campaign.
