OLD PAGES

Outdoor Classroom

 

Our 3s, 4s & 5s learn about nature in each classroom every day.  WSYC has extended this curriculum into a garden adjacent to our playground on Mayfair.  Children observe seasonal changes, discover how seeds grow into giant plants, and follow the life cycle of butterflies and habits of other animals.

Our outdoor classroom provides:

  • raised beds for growing vegetables
  • foliage and plants that attract butterflies
  • a bird viewing station
  • a rain gauge, thermometer and outdoor chalkboard
  • a seating area for circle time and picnics
  • a composter and worm bin.

Through the outdoor classroom, WSYC promotes a sense of wonder in creation and a sense of stewardship toward all living things.  Join us in the garden to observe these treasures of nature and our precious children.
