Nature for Life!

Nature can make us happier, smarter and feel better? Really, itís that simple? Yes, there is a strong connection between spending time in nature and overall health and well-being. Children who spend time in nature are more likely to have healthier social behaviour, improved self-esteem, resilience, ability to learn and concentrate, as well as environmental awareness and stewardship ethics. Time in nature decreases stress and anxiety, depression, diabetes, hypertension and many other health problems. We are fortunate to have many opportunities to enjoy nature in our communities - trails, outdoor classrooms, parks, gardens, lakes, rivers, horses, dogs, cats - the list is endless.

READ TO YOUR CHILDREN!
They will learn a lot more than you may think.


“Emergent literacy skills” are skills that babies, toddlers, and preschoolers need to learn so that they are ready for reading and writing when they start school. These skills include vocabulary, book-handling skills, story-telling skills, scribbling and drawing, recognizing print and understanding what it is for, and singing and rhyming.
