“Nothing great comes without a risk”. After School Care added a little adventure to their outside time last week simply by adding a knotted rope. The kids enjoyed multiple rounds of tug-o-war and then proceeded to mountain climb up the slide using teamwork and a lot of muscle. I’m happy to report there where no injuries but there were a lot of really tired and happy kids.
