Learning environments

Our learning environments are welcoming spaces that reflect and enrich the lives of the children and their families. 

The environments we provide are vibrant and flexible spaces that are responsive to the interests of the children. In these environments, we provide lots of oppurtunities for the children to BELONG, BE and BECOME. Children are invited to engage in open-ended interactions, exploration, spontaneity and discovery.

All spaces promote collaborative learning as well as quiet reflection. Play spaces incorporate natural elements like trees, plants, vegetables, herbs,  rocks, mud, sand and water. These spaces offer a variety of sensory experiences. Our outdoor spaces foster an appreciation of the natural environment.

Spending time in the natural environment has a positive effect on both physical health and mental health.
