Spending time in Nature is important for people of all ages. While exploring nature, children learn:
*concepts of texture, color, weight and size
*to group objects into categories
*to observe similarities and differences
*to appreciate nature, and develop a sense of wonder
The children at TLC ELC are exposed to nature through playing outside, walks around the neighborhood, sensory table play, art projects (painting with things found in nature, collages…) and field trips to various nature centers.
