Kool Kidz Rowville children celebrated Nature Week 11-22nd May,
At Kool Kidz Rowville we like to enhance our learning environments with whatever natural resources we can get our hands on and share with our eager children.
Nature week was a special time to celebrate our children’s creativity and imagination through their nature and outdoor play.
A good example of this was when a pinecone was used as a person to sit in a truck and drive, it was also used for imprinting in some soft new playdough and then it was seen later on in the sand pit being used in a magical concoction in a big cooking pot.
Natural objects with open-ended possibilities certainly encourage our children to engage in richer play experiences.
It encourages our children to see the natural environment as a haven to enjoy, play, imagine, relax and explore.
A growing body of evidence suggests that, from backyards to streets, parks and gardens, from the beach to the bush, children do better outside!
