Our children are naturally curious about the world around them. They love studying astronomy, nature, ecology, physics, and chemistry. Our classrooms are full of hands on materials to let the children explore and ponder.
- Washing a shell or a pumpkin
- Leaf rubbing
- A magnifying glass
- Classification of objects
- Mixing colors
- Buoyancy of objects
Activities like these encourage children to explore their environment with all their senses. Once their senses have been awakened, the children move on to abstract concepts like caring for plants, identifying shapes found in leaves or naming the parts of a frog.
All of these experiences help the children understand our world and the invaluable lesson of our place in it.
