Outdoor Nature Immersion Program

Creative Nature Fall 2019

Reggio Emilia Inspired Nature Program

  • Pre - K
  • 3:30 - 5:30pm
  • 1 + 2 + 3 Day

Through hands-on exploration, we will investigate many different artistic tools and techniques that can be used to create things with natural materials. Together we will explore, listen, observe, smell, and touch the natural beauty of this colorful season. Beginning with songs and movement, we will build a community of learners before going on an adventure to collect natural materials such as sticks, leaves, berries, rocks, and clay for our creative toolbox.  With the intention of process over product, students will be encouraged to work through their creative process by experimenting with materials, formulating a plan, and problem-solving ideas as an artist, engineer, or scientist. Elements of design and color theory will be discussed but most importantly children will be given the time, space, and guidance to explore nature and become creative innovators of the 21st century!   

This small mixed age group WILL BE OUTSIDE in all weather exploring the fields and outdoor spaces surrounding SHED Children’s Campus! Please assist your child in packing clothes and dressing for the class according to the forecast.

Forest Days Winter/Spring 2020

Reggio Emilia Inspired Nature Program

  • Pre - K
  • 3:30 - 5:30pm
  • 1 + 2 + 3 Day

On Forest Days we provide the time and space for children to discover, question, observe and document the natural world at their own pace and natural rhythm. Through open-ended child-led inquiry and exploration, we will research and celebrate the changing seasons and how they alter our environment. We will climb rocks, jump in puddles, build forts and shelters, dig for worms, and play in the snow to gain a more in-depth understanding of the natural world. Teachers will support and encourage exploration of child-led imaginative play while not intruding unless there is a safety concern or risk. The majority of our class time will be spent outside exploring in each season. With proper attire, our students will learn to embrace the rain, snow, and sunshine alike, as well as any other weather pattern that New England has to offer. Seasonal snacks will be provided to warm us up or cool us off.
