At Nature Nurture, we feel strongly that exploration is the key that opens the door to adventure, enlightenment, and learning; respect for the child is the key that keeps the door open. Nature Nurture is filled with rich opportunities for growth, individualized recognition, feedback, support, and compliments, as well as learning and practicing conflict resolution, respect for self and others, and etiquette. Our day is also filled with having fun, fun, and more fun!
Children are encouraged to use all forms of expression: words, sounds, body language, basic sign language (taught at Nature Nurture), art, music and dramatic play. They are also encouraged to problem-solve on their own. When needed, a teacher or support teacher is there; ready and able to contribute words, choices, or suggestions for the children to tell each other. More times than not, with just a little nudge or the provision of a few words, the situation has been resolved...by the children.
ALL Nature Nurture classes are held rain or shine. Please come prepared with proper attire for the predicted, and equally unpredicted San Francisco weather. We love puddle jumping and scouring for worms in the mud.
