Nurture By Nature Day School
We are a licensed Multi-aged childcare facility that is dedicated to providing an exceptional quality of care, with mainly play based programming activities that are focused on the discovery of the world around us.
The children ages 9 months to 12 years will experience in play all types of natural and man-made materials on a daily basis, so they will gain a firm foundation and understanding of the diversity in the world.
All of the children engage daily in arts and crafts, science, music and movement, free play, oral story’s, circle time, letter and number recognition, patterning and sequencing, and outdoor play. Our staff is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment using positive guidance techniques to help the children expand upon their social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional growth. We are always happy to assist parents in learning how to add more of this SPICE to their child’s life.
Nurture By Nature Day School brings nature into the classroom and takes the classroom into nature, offering a foundation of early learning fun. All children will be given first hand experiences to actively explore and learn from, while having a safe and stimulating environment.
Our day is spent both indoors and outdoors in our large yard and is following an Emergent Curriculum philosophy. Our teachers (Registered Early Childhood Educators) use observation and documentation to plan each day. Play based learning encourages independence, choice, problem solving, wonder and of course exploration!
Contact Nurture By Nature
We strongly believe that being outdoors in a beautiful and natural environment is an essential experience for all children. Research continues to show that nature reduces stress, increases attention span and fosters healthy brain development. It is critical to a child’s health and to the healthy development of the whole child to have the opportunity to interact daily with materials found in nature and explore them both inside and outside.
We do not limit the children to only nature type activities because we believe that exposure to many types of toys, media and objects creates the best environment for a child to learn. When a child knows and has a firm understanding of the world around them and what is expected it allows them to take on the world confidently.
