Midcity Childcare Nature Programme has come about as a result of the desire to connect children that attend Midcity Childcare with their own natural environment.
We believe that frequent positive experiences in a natural environment can have a major impact on the healthy growth and development of children.
It will also enable children to develop a lifelong awareness ,respect, care and sensitivity to the environment. We believe connecting our children with nature through hands on, informal exploration is a great way to do this. Teachers will take prompts from the children and will be guided by the children's questions and will encourage children's natural curiosity and thinking, fostering their natural “sense of wonder".
The Midcity Childcare Trust Nature Programme will be run in partnership with The Department of Conversation (DOC).
Parents are welcome to be involved in these weekly outings.
