Gardens are where children's imaginations engage with nature, and the result is joyful learning. Gardening helps children develop an appreciation for the natural world and supports learning and development across all domains.
Gardening offers hands-on learning experiences and provides the chance for inquiry-based exploration while also inspiring children's natural curiosity and wonder. Our school garden is part of your child's daily outdoor experiences and is designed to support their cognitive, physical, social and development.
Some noted benefits of garden-based education programs include:
Build an understanding of and respect for nature and the environment
Motivate kids to eat and love fruits and vegetables
Provide opportunities for hands-on learning, inquiry, observation and experimentation
Promote physical activity and quality outdoor experiences
Teach kids to nurture and care for other living things while developing patience
Offer opportunities for positive social interactions and team building experiences with students, families and community members
