We don’t need to tell you that kids love the outdoors.
Rain, hail or shine, they will want to be out there exploring, playing, and adventuring!
And being outside is so good for their development too.
However, it does pose a bit of a challenge to get numerous babies and preschoolers out the door for a proper excursion.
Unless you have a KinderPod stroller that is.
We’ve repeatedly been told by childminders and childcare providers that KinderPod is the stroller of choice for early childhood education. But, don’t just take our word for it. Listen to what the amazing educators at Puddle Ducks' Nursery and Preschool Centres had to say.
The Benefits Of Walking With Children
Aside from the physical health benefits of walking, there are heaps of other benefits to getting babies and preschoolers outside and on the go. Some of them are:
- Increased stimulation and learning opportunities
- Burn off excess energy for better sleep patterns
- Improved mental health
- Strengthens bodies - even while riding in a stroller as they are more alert
- Develops balance, posture, flexibility and coordination
For more detail on the benefits of walking with children, check out our recent blog post.
So, we know walking is great, but it can be a challenge to get multiple children out of the centre or home at the one time. KinderPod might be the solution you have been searching for.
KinderPod: The Choice Of Early Childhood Centres And Childminders
As a childcare provider, we know that you love children and care about their health and wellbeing. Which is why you’d love the freedom to be able to quickly and easily take multiple young children out for a walk without the hassle of preparing a motor vehicle.
Investing in a KinderPod stroller will mean that you can get out into the community without any of the petrol or power costs, and you don’t even need to find a carpark. Simply strap the kids in and hit the pavement!
Gain the freedom to walk multiple children with KinderPod just like Puddle Duck Nursery and Preschool Centres did. Three of the Puddle Duck Centres own KinderPod Arohanui strollers. The Arohanui is a double stroller, and Puddle Duck have chosen to then add a double toddler seat attachment to the top. That means the stroller can safely carry 4 kids at once!
Getting Out And About With KinderPod
Check out how KinderPod has helped Marike Drimell from Puddle Duck Gladstone Street take the children on outdoor adventures:
“We take children aged 6 months to 2 years out between 1-4 times a month, depending on the weather. Our KinderPod makes it much easier to go on outings with younger children.
KinderPod has really helped to enrich the learning experience of the children as we get to connect with the community, explore nature, challenge our bodies on community playgrounds and spark learning experiences they wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
But KinderPod has given us more than physical development. The children also get excited about the inclusion aspects and getting to go out all together. Participating in group outings gives them a sense of belonging to the community and the ability to explore different spots.
The KinderPod is easy to push and navigate. It feels incredibly stable and all of this allows more children to participate in outings.”
Wish You Could Get Out For More Walks?
Is outdoor enrichment on your list of goals for the children in your care? Being in the outdoors is a great learning opportunity that only increases once you get beyond the walls of your childcare centre or child minding premises.
At preschool age, children’s minds are like little sponges. Everything can be an opportunity for learning and development.
If you are wanting to get the children in your care out into nature more, then KinderPod can help you do it. We have a range of different stroller seating arrangements that can allow you to safely walk with up to six children at one time.
