Northeast Iowa Community College
Child Development Center

It has been a very busy summer for us and we spent a lot of time outside in our outdoor classroom. We tried many new things which included having an enviroscience class.

We learned about different seeds, different kinds of bugs we see and gained new knowledge about things we planted. It was such a success with the kids. They were excited to share their knowledge with their families. This enviroscience class helped us improve our planter boxes with bright, new and beautiful different kinds of flowers and tomatoes.

We also were fortunate enough to get a couple new outdoor boxes for the purpose of sand, mud, water and fun mess! We kept up with our twice a year classroom clean-up and this includes families and numerous people from the campus. We plant new plants, weed, freshen up fall spaces with woodchips and improve our planter boxes. We love being outside everyday!
