Children of Tomorrow Learning Center
Nestled beyond the pines is our Nature Explore classroom. Filled with materials found in nature children are encouraged to explore, dig in the dirt, make messes and use their imagination. Featuring lots of options for open ended play we see children come alive as they use loose parts to explore and discover. From working on social skills, problem solving and creating some amazing things from nature it’s been so fun to watch our children learn and grow.
Our Children of Tomorrow families have come together to create this amazing outdoor space, donating time, materials and labor putting together our outdoor classroom. We even had a local school build and donate a storage shed to enhance the space so this is truly a community effort. We had our families join together on a Saturday morning with tools, materials and a can-do attitude to revamp and enhance the spaces they created a year ago that were getting well-loved by the children who use it.
This year we added graduation boulders in honor of our Preschool Graduates. They got to design, paint and put their names on a special boulder near our gathering area to commemorate their accomplishments here at Children of Tomorrow and add additional seating or spaces to climb.
We are fortunate to have such a great space for children to learn and grow and can’t wait to see how next year’s children choose to utilize our outdoor space and we will follow their lead as they show us what they’re interested in and how they see themselves in their outdoor classroom.
