Learn More About Our Nature Program

We are proud to announce that in 2014 Child's was recognized as a Certified Nature Explore Classroom by the Nature Explore program, which is a collaboration of Dimensions Educational Research and the Arbor Day Foundation.

At Child's Play we believe that the natural world is the children's third teacher.Our outdoor classroom is a place where children are free to explore the world around them. They have time to connect with nature each day while attending our program. Child's Play Nature Escape is made up of several different areas including areas for gathering, gardening, music and movement, art, climbing, building, water play, sand play, messy materials, mud kitchen and wheeled-toys.

"Image a world in which all children grow up with a deep understanding of the life around them. Where obesity is reduced through nature play. Where anti-depressants and pharmaceuticals are prescribe less and nature prescribed more. Where every school has a natural play space. Where children experience the joy of being in nature before they learn its loss,where they lie in the grass on hillside for hours and watch clouds become the faces of the future.Where every child and every adult has a human right to a connection to the natural world,and shares the responsibility for caring it." -Richard Louv
