At Forest Hill Nature Preschool, we believe that children learn best when they have the opportunity to explore, discover, and create. Connecting with nature is a way to expand children's minds. We do this by exploring outside--by comparing bugs, playing in streams and learning about the abundance of wildlife available in our backyards. Many kids growing up in this technological world tend to miss out on the educational opportunities available through nature. It is our goal to help children discover and develop an appreciation for the outside world. Wild in the Woods gives children the freedom to learn and play in a safe outdoor setting. On our property, the children have the chance to explore open fields, 6 acers of hiking and an oppertunity to scout our capacious pond.
2018-2019 Wild Projects
This project is weather pending and will be completed throughout the year. Luckily, our first week of school has been a wet one and we have been able to delve right in! During this project we will be able to explore reflections and have the opportunity to develop our balance and gross motor skills.
The three and four year olds will be joining me for a hike through the field to a book picnic. We will be reading beautiful black bird and getting trible art based off the art blackbird provides to his bird friends. We will learn that blackbird is a crow and make bird calls, as well as morning dove calls.
