Our playground is designed to encourage the children's innate curiosity to explore nature. From playing in the sand box and campground or exploring the bugs in the bushes, children can experience imaginary, exploratory play. We are constantly seeking ways to improve our playground and give the children more chances to interact with the world around them. Our future plans include developing a community garden and a micro farm with chickens and a baby pigmy goat.
Brain Gym refers to the 26 movements that recall the movement naturally done during the first years of life when learning to coordinate the eyes, ears, hands and whole body. The whole "learning through movement", was developed by educator and reading specialist Paul E. Dennison and his wife and colleague, Gail E. Dennison who say that the independence of movement, cognitive and applied learning is the basis of their work. We try to implement something on a daily basis that has had proven success for over 20 years. This program has been proven to improve: concentration and focus, memory, academics, physical coordination, self-responsibility, attitude. We believe by allowing children to move throughout the day, it improves their ability to learn.
