What are the benefits of outdoor play for a child's development?
Research tells us there is no one-size-fits-all answer. It depends on what kids actually do when they're outside. It also depends on where kids play. But overall, children can reap many benefits when they play outdoors, including
Developing athletic abilities – to run fast, jump far, and climb.
With Outdoor play your child will become more physically coordinated. For example, in a study of early years, researchers found that kids’ basic motor skills (like throwing, somersaulting, and kicking a ball) didn’t vary much as a function of how often a child played outdoors
playing outside could help kids develop specific athletic abilities and skills, and there were hints of this in the early years study. The kids who played outside more often were faster on their feet. Compared with their more “indoor” peers, they completed a ten meter race in a shorter time.
What is The Daily Mile?
Simply put, The Daily Mile is 15 minutes when children jog or run, at their own pace, during the school day at a time of the teacher’s choosing. We recommend this be during lesson time, so children have their full break / play time. The Daily Mile is not Sport or PE, but rather health and wellbeing through physical activity.
It’s a simple and straightforward initiative that has been acknowledged for reducing childhood obesity.. The Daily Mile Foundation encourages every school doing The Daily Mile to sign up and join our growing global community.
We recommend schools introduce The Daily Mile to children as a run or jog, not as a walk. If implemented as per core principals, almost all children will be able to run for most, or all of, the way after around 4 weeks. This level of fitness will be maintained or improved over the coming months and years.
The Daily Mile is a free, effective initiative that any school can implement without the need for staff training. Its impact can be transformational – improving not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing
