This is our story from the past year…
Our program is almost completely outdoor based- except for extreme weather- we are outside. We think this factors greatly in our response to the pandemic- we are outside in nature- the children are breathing fresh air- and not playing with plastic toys that need constant sanitizing. The restrictions from the department showed us that our philosophy of ‘less is more’ is really accurate. The children are happy playing outside in nature. One of our biggest concerns has probably been watching the symptoms- a runny nose- is that from playing in the cold- or from seasonal allergies? We are so glad to see the pandemic numbers decreasing steadily- and hope that soon this will be behind us. But so grateful to have our outdoor classrooms- and the children who just want to play and learn outside.
