Children’s Academy features a natural play environment we like to consider our outdoor classroom. Our outdoor classroom gives children more than just an area to run around, it provides children with a place to really enjoy natural life through experimentation, discovery, creative play, and physical play, as well as a special place to relax, read stories and enjoy snacks outdoors when weather permits.

As part of our outdoor classroom, children tend to their very own fruit, vegetable, herb and flower gardens. In the gardens, children will have a hands on project year round where they will learn about the process of where food comes from, the value of hard work, plant life cycles, seasonal changes, as well as concepts of time, management, team work, and problem solving skills, not to mention the benefits of a variety of edible nutrients that they helped grow!
