Outdoor Classroom

 
Whether they are closely observing seasonal changes, discovering how easily pumpkin seeds grow or following the life cycle of the painted lady butterfly, our three, four and five year olds at Westminster will be learning about nature in every classroom every day.  We have been able to extend this curriculum into a garden next to our playground. Our new outdoor classroom will have lots of exciting features.
  • planting boxes for growing vegetables
  • butterfly attracting garden
  • bird viewing station
  • rain gauge and thermometer, outdoor chalkboard
  • seating area for circle time or a picnic
  • composter and worm bin

In undertaking this outdoor classroom project, Westminster hopes to promote in its students a sense of the wonder nature has to hold and a sense of stewardship toward all living things. Please watch our progress as this site continues to take shape this year.
