We play out in nature all year long! It is imperative that your child is dressed appropriately, preferably in layers.
We have several indoor facilities that are cooled/heated for inclement weather that is deemed unsafe for long periods of exposure. We have a secure shelter area in case of tornados.
Around Mighty Roots Academy you may hear directors and guides say "There is no such things as bad weather, just bad gear!"
Be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. Rainy days will bring mud, so prepare for dirty clothing & easy-to-take-on-and-off shoes/boots on those days. Colder days will require layers so that your child stays at a comfortable temperature. We do plan to get dirty throughout the day which is a great way to support your child's sensory system & immune system!
