Cummins Child Development Center

The children in our care learn a tremendous amount of information related to the outdoors when they experience the richness of our Nature Explore Classrooms. They learn about symbiotic relationships and that every animal, insect and plant have a purpose. The fear of insects, animals, raindrops, snowflakes, and hot humid days are diminished when together they safely explore with their peers, parents and their educators.

Our Nature Explore classrooms are unique in that we now have a woodlands area with trees that are native to Indiana.The children will be able to experience a “forest or woodlands” environment. We too are fortunate to have a creek on the other side of the fence but are able to explore the geese and other animals from our observation deck.
