Can time spent in nature be used as a learning tool?⁣

These days, many kids are spending more time at home as activities are either canceled or rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now is the best time for you and your child to spend time in nature. ⁣

In a recent study, researcher Dr. Louise Chawla says there is strong evidence that kids are happier, healthier, and function better when they learn to connect with nature. 🍃⁣

Children get to know more about the environment and are more likely to take action to protect it. Giving kids access to parks, gardens, and wild areas is important for them to make that connection. 🍃 ⁣

At Rock and Roll Daycare we implement an vigorous nature curriculum, encouraging hans-on projects for children to complete as a fun challenge! Oh how much they learn through fun!⁣

Have you been in the nearby part lately? Have you seen how leaves change colors?⁣

Some children adapt to some programs better than others, but when you find a program that works, it’s important to stick with it so kids can continue to flourish. 🎶⁣⁣⁣

At Rock and Roll Daycare, students are introduced to many classroom materials that embody the style of Montessori teaching tools as well as the resources available through the Fiddlefox program. 🎻⁣⁣
