Simply Irresistible

It’s not unusual to hear exclamations like these rocketing around the trees in Forest Aftercare. In fact, this same student even went so far as to make up a song about how much she loves the woods.

Young children are naturally curious about the world.  They learn through observing and imitating what they experience. In the supportive surroundings of the Children’s Garden, we nurture children’s innate abilities for observation, which will then support their capacity for inquiry in later intellectual development.

Activities are brought by the teachers through imagination. Using stories, songs and festivals that bring a picture of nature and the change of seasons, they ignite the children’s interest by meeting them where they are at this stage of development.
