Get outside this summer with NCT

Whether or not the sun is shining, you can have fun getting out and about with your baby. Find out about outdoor NCT activities that you can be part of.

Playing outside is fun, exciting and important for children’s learning and development. From enjoying a walk with your newborn in their pram, to pushing your toddler on the swings, the great outdoors gives children plenty to explore. They’ll embrace the freedom and space the outdoors gives them to shout, jump, run around, hop and skip.

Being outside is an exciting sensory experience for babies and toddlers. Babies will enjoy the exciting visuals on offer as you take them for a walk outdoors. Toddlers love the chance to explore different spaces and touch natural objects. Read more about the benefits of outdoor play for children.

Playing outside is really important as it gives your little one the chance to look around and learn.

While you’re having fun as a family, taking your children outdoors and supporting their play is also helping their development. What’s more, the whole family benefits from being outside.
