It’s been a great month at Creative World Schools!

What does mud feel like? Is it warm or cool, wet or dry, soft or hard? We got our hands dirty with the squishy, rich earth at Creative World School Noland in MO!

For our Down to Earth inquiry, we’ve been getting our hands dirty outside learning gardening skills and watching things grow! Our outdoor adventures have been amazing as we’ve explored the world outside. From our youngest learners taking buggy rides, feeling mud, and collecting leaves to our oldest children inspecting nature through a magnifying glass, we’ve used all of our resources to maximize our learning experience!

Our young learners are using flowers, leaves, and other items we collected from nature to make amazing stamps and paint artwork at Creative World School Aurora.

Did you know that outdoor play and enjoying environments of natural play is vital to the development of young children?

“Outdoor play fosters opportunities for creativity, imagination, social connections, and learned behaviors. There are two types of outdoor playscapes: natural and constructed. Natural playscapes offer sensory stimulation and physical diversity which is critical for childhood experiences outdoors.”*

Planting is powerful! We invested in the earth on Earth Day and throughout the entire month at Creative World School Plainfield.
