Preschool and Kindergarten
2020 marks an unusual year filled with ups and downs due to the COVID pandemic. Most of our “ups” have been related to our ability to engage with and embrace nature at Messiah!
Never have the outdoors played a more important role in our programs and health. Our nature playground has allowed us extra time outside to take breaks from wearing masks and to get some much needed fresh air. We created an “outdoor learning lab” with kid-sized picnic tables adjacent to our Gathering Area. The perfect spot for a snack, project, story or natural exploration!
Nature walks with friends, observing leaves changing colors, examining a furry caterpillar up close, a glimpse of a butterfly hovering on a wildflower-these are all signs of hope and peace for our students and staff during this unusual time.
