Gardening season is here and getting your garden planted is a wonderful learning opportunity for even the youngest children in your care.
From counting, sorting and comparing different seeds, to measuring soil and mixing.
Gardening supports all the learning domains such as fine motor to gross skills, early math and literacy. Gardening can help children grasp new concepts and support mental and emotional wellbeing while connecting to nature.
Right now is a perfect time to start a garden program and plant seeds for the warmers days to come. There is no right or wrong way to garden, from container gardens on patio steps, to in ground gardening, we can grow herbs and veggies anywhere!
