When is it too cold for an outside activity?
There are no national guidelines stating when children can and can not be outside during cold weather periods in Norway.
At Birralee, we follow the local advice given by Trondheim Kommune’s Miljøenheten (Faktaark om kulde og barn). Our decision to shorten or postpone a planned outside activity is based on the following factors:
The “feels-like” temperature (wind speed, humidity etc.)
How old the children are
The activity they are doing
How long will they be outside
It is very important that children are dressed appropriately for all kinds of weather. More information and tips can be found in our Parent Handbook.
