The importance of play

Body
Outdoor play increases fitness levels and builds active, healthy bodies, an important strategy in helping the one in three              American kids who are obese get fit.  
Spending time outside raises levels of Vitamin D, helping protect children from future bone problems, heart disease, diabetes and other health issues.
Being out there improves distance vision and lowers the chance of nearsightedness.

Mind
Exposure to natural settings may be widely effective in reducing ADHD symptoms.
Schools with environmental education programs score higher on standardized tests in math, reading, writing and listening.
Exposure to environment-based education significantly increases student performance on tests of their critical thinking skills.

Spirit
Children’s stress levels fall within minutes of seeing green spaces.
Play protects children’s emotional development whereas loss of free time and a hurried lifestyle can contribute to anxiety and depression.  Nature makes you nicer, enhancing social interactions, value for community and close relationships.

Where Love & Learning Overlap, 

Building self confidence and developing a love and excitement of learning in a small family setting.  By providing a small family environment inside and out, children are more comfortable to learn and explore. I work hard to keep the children excited about ongoing learning and activities.  We encourage ideas on how to inspire our children through art, music, logic games and hands on investigations.  Our preschoolers are naturally exposed to skills which support their on-going social-emotional , physical, language and cognitive development.
