Outdoor Classroom

Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.

-Albert Einstein

The Reggio Philosophy places a great deal of importance on time in nature. For obvious reasons, children flourish when they are outside. We often take activities that are normally done inside the classroom to the outdoors such as reading, eating, having a meeting, or making music. We will often conduct science inquiries outside. In our gardens, we have carefully selected plants to attract various animals to allow the children to be a part of various life cycles and natural wildlife habitats. The children play outside and engage in meaningful work:

  • tracking the weather
  • tending to our gardens
  • composting
  • reading the rain gauge
  • building and constructing
  • water play
  • physical education

Our outdoor classroom is a special place where childhood thrives.
