We are happy to announce that the Children's Garden has been re-certified by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Nature Explore Classroom. This will mark our ninth year of certification. There are now 12 of these outdoor classrooms in Missouri including Shaws Garden, the Nature Reserve , Richmond Heights Community Center and another preschool in Fredricktown MO.
For the past nine years our teachers have been utilizing the Nature Explore Club activities and feel the lessons and materials lend themselves very well to children’s discovery. The children are always engaged and excited about the activities while observations lead them to new learning opportunities.
