The Child Centered Home

In the last year we have learned that some of our original Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom features were needing some maintenance. For example, the posts on our stage were rotting out, so we needed to replace them in order for our structure to remain safe.

Our plan is for this structured space to evolve as our thoughts and needs change. It can be an art area, a place for sensory activities, a gardening area….the possibilities are endless! We’ve also been beautifying our spaces with new plants that add visual interest, aroma, and space for our local wildlife to live and hide as needed. One of our favorite new spaces is the “Christmas Tree Farm.” It’s a line of Lemon Cypresses that will grow and grow and we can decorate them in the winter to bring that magical feeling of winter to southern California.
