Spring Time at Little Starfish ~ March 2019
Spring is one of our favorite seasons. After a particularly cold and snowy February, we are happy the sun and warmth have returned and we can enjoy being outdoors enjoying the fresh air and sunshine!
Miss Melissa has been teaching preschool outdoors and engaging the children in math games, science experiments and gardening projects. They have been busy preschoolers! They love learning STEM concepts outdoors. By playing in the natural world, children become observers of and participants in the amazing systems of nature.
One activity : Each child plants their own pumpkin seed in a small pot and watches over the weeks as it sprouts and grows. Later, when the plant is ready, the children help to plan them in our pumpkin patch and tend them by watering and weeding until the pumpkins are ready to be harvested in the fall. In this meaningful way, the child learns the life cycle of plants.
At Little Starfish we love to make learning fun! Our goal is to help the children develop and grow physically, emotionally, cognitively and socially while exploring the world in a safe and nurturing environment.
Wishing you all a very lovely spring!
