Young children enjoy being outdoors and exploring. Children who spend time outside every day are healthier, happier, and more creative, less stressed, and more alert than those who don’t. Research has shown this is an important part of childhood development.
The Nature Sprout program is designed to create a positive connection between young children and nature while developing early childhood skills.
Children listen to a story, sing a song, take a nature walk, finish a craft, and play games all designed to increase motor skills, improve socialization, and develop simple understandings of nature and their surroundings.
