Early Childhood

Nature is the ideal playscape for the climbing, running, pondering and wondering of healthy child development. Unstructured outdoor play and guided nature activities can be part of children’s everyday lives. Early childhood education centers and homecare sites can incorporate natural playspace designs, short off-site nature walks, family nature clubs, native plants, and gardens.
