Our dedicated outdoor area encourages children to engage in free-play, with an interactive creek bed, a digging patch, a beautiful sandpit, tree stumps, and climbing frames. Children in this area immerse themselves in a sensory and tactile involvement with nature, amid leaves and tree trunks, digging in the dirt, cooking with mud and building with tree branches, sticks, pebbles and other found objects.
A vegetable garden and compost bin develop children’s understanding of growth and recycling. Children participate, and learn a sense of responsibility and sustainability by maintaining the vegetable garden and recycling food waste. Children plant the vegetables, watch them grow, and even get to eat the tasty results!
