The St. Thomas’ playgrounds offer a fun and safe play environment that stimulates students' minds and allows for their cognitive, physical, and social development. Our outdoor play areas provide children with rich opportunities to grow, learn, and develop. Play is the key to the physical, mental, intellectual and social well-being of children. Playgrounds play an important role in children’s daily life for fulfilling their interest, development and learning needs.
Research shows that outdoor free play gives kids many valuable benefits, including the development of: physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills, self-confidence and self-esteem, experimenting with emotions, releasing emotions from trauma, playing alone and group interaction.
