About the Provider

Description: Natural Wonders Childcare is a nature-based program and we spend the majority of time outdoors. I want children to explore their natural environment in a safe yet unstructured way. We take nature walks in the woods, field, do gardening, explore in my fairy garden, and take care of my two sheep, two goats, and chickens into our daily routine. The children love feeding the animals and collecting the eggs! I run my program as a center within a home environment. We have weekly themes, art projects, circle-time activities consisting of singing, puppets, finger plays, stories, yoga, etc. As children get older, we incorporate shapes, colors, numbers, letters, etc. into the curriculum.
