A Child’s Touch

In our Nature Explore Classroom, we believe that every day is a chance for children to learn, grow, and have fun.

Through free play and planned activities, we foster a sense of wonder, creativity, and appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. We have incorporated our nature classroom with school-wide and teacher specific goals in order to see positive outcomes at every age. This new goal-based program has resulted in nature-based innovation pouring from every area of the school, from infants to school age.

Furthermore, we have recently enhanced our mud kitchen with additional natural items, igniting children’s imagination and providing ample opportunities for messy, hands-on play. The mud kitchen is now a hub of creativity, where children can concoct imaginary recipes using natural materials. From mud pies to leaf soup, this space encourages imaginative play and allows for a deeper connection with the earth.

The natural world is a place for endless discovery and growth and we are grateful that we were able to use and grow our Nature Explore Classroom this year.
