Family Service Head Start Pilgrim
We are a Head Start program which means we involve parents and the community in many things. It is important to our program to support families and children in school readiness and we feel our nature playground gives children the opportunity to explore, to be creative, and to learn things that most children do not know about their world. Our playground supports many opportunities for teacher’s to observe children in many areas of our Head Start Framework as well as the assessment observations we do for our children.
Children are so excited to tell stories about their daily experiences on the playground. We recently became a NAEYC accreditation school and we are so proud that our playground was a part of our schools shining star.
Teachers from other locations come to our center for visits and are impressed by our efforts to make such a wonderful outdoor experienced for children. We are moving into the winter season but we always look forward to planting the garden in the spring time. Parents and their children work together in the planting process. We will reach out to our local nurseries to support us in our planting efforts.
