It is important for the body to be exposed to hot and cold conditions in a safe and planned way for health and wellbeing. Such exposure encourages your mind and body to deal with significant changes in temperature, thus reducing potential negative effects of heat or cold stress. Building physical and mental resilience in this way can prevent children from suffering from unnecessary illness.

In other words, being outside in all weathers, with the exception of high wind, thunder and lighting is good for you and your family. Attending Join the Dots Forest School sessions through out the year can help with building immunity and developing natural body heat responses in your child.
