"A Child s Nature provides flexible, full-day child care and education for families of diverse backgrounds. Surrounded by goodness, truth and beauty, our children achieve their full potential through daily outdoor adventures, purposeful work, artistic experiences and imaginative play with a curriculum inspired by Waldorf education. Through close personal relationships with caregivers, teachers and nature, our children grow into capable, caring individuals who can step out into the wider world with confidence." This mission statement was written by a group of parents, teachers and other community members, and I think it really does express what happens at our childcare center. I have been a teacher/caregiver for 7 years, in all the classes (infants, toddlers, and preschool), and it is wonderful to see how the children learn and grow here -- and they do have so much fun out in the woods.
