Our Natural and Educational Curriculum
The Teaching Home Family Childcare outdoor preschool includes nature focused learning throughout the school year. Our Nature focus topics last two weeks and emphasize a particular plant, species, or element. Examples of our Northwest Nature Topics include: Flowers, beaches and sea life, trees, salmon, rocks and fossils, weather, and native birds.
Incorporated into our nature focuses are books, songs, facts, hands-on activities and art projects; as well as a fun and educational field-trip. Planting, growing and harvesting their own organic vegetables is a rewarding process children take pride participating in.
Our nature awareness philosophy encourages an appreciation, admiration, and understanding of our native northwest environment. This helps introduces a sense of significance, esteem, and importance that they can help protect and preserve nature and wildlife in little eco-friendly ways. For example, preschoolers find creative ways to use recycled materials for science and constructing art projects. They enjoy participating in adventurous activities, such as planting a tree and observing animals!
