Recess is much more than a break between classes. The benefits of this time outside of the classroom can be just as meaningful to a child’s development as time spent in the classroom.
Recess provides an opportunity for kids to clear their minds so they can stay focused throughout the day. It’s also a chance for kids to get outside and MOVE; beyond supporting health and fitness levels, physical activity releases endorphins in the brain that can help reduce anxiety. Kids’ social skills are at play during recess too! These regular breaks help develop soft skills by giving kids time to bond and socialize with their peers. Time outside with friends or trying a new activity can also spark kids’ imaginations, nurture creativity, or find a new favourite hobby.
