Kids Country Wadsworth

 

      At Kids Country Day School- Wadsworth Campus, we have brought some new ideas to our Nature Explore environment, along with keeping some of our past ones.

When it comes to our gardens, we amped them up this year with the education of an organic gardener. Each of our classrooms planted seeds inside to transplant once the weather broke. Along with that they have planted different herbs to replant our sensory walk, which allows the children to experience the growing herbs with all of their senses. They can see them, listen to them move as the wind blows, smell them, feel them between their fingers, and of course taste them. They also love to use these fresh herbs in their creations in the mud kitchen.

We have continued to keep our sandboxes and mud kitchens equipped with a variety of materials to maintain the children’s interests. Our stage has been transformed into a new area that the children can use as a quiet space. A shade was added over top along with some pillows, small stools, and books. Looking into the future, we are hoping to add a water feature, such as a river or fountain in the future.
