Children, age 3 & 4, are invited to enroll in the play-based Tender Roots Forest School Program. Every Forest School day, the children are given time to explore, discover and play – with the forest as muse. Each teacher, as nature guide, creates a flow using songs, stories, and exploration – guiding and following the children as they discover the wonders of nature, of themselves, and of each other, thus, sparking their imagination and invoking their curiosity. Every day in the forest, the Tender Roots have time for deep play – using the natural materials of the outdoor environment as their toys and tools – developing their fine motor skills. Daily, the Tender Roots kids use their bodies to climb, run, and jump – developing their gross motor skills. Using both hands and feet, and dealing with varying inclines, levels, and distances between platforms, has been shown to enhance children’s proprioception, the ability to sense one’s own body’s position and movement in space. Let’s get them outside…ready to grow and take root!
