Natural Resources

As we know, children learn through play; by doing, by interacting with others and by asking questions. The tactile experience children have handling natural materials makes learning fun and exciting.

In addition to our nature walks and activities outdoors I like to ensure the children have the opportunity to explore natural resources.

Here are just some of the natural resources made available to children here at Aston Childcare –

  • Shells
  • Twigs
  • Mud
  • Leaves
  • Pebbles
  • Pine cones
  • Conkers
  • Sand
  • Water
  • Heuristic treasure basket for babies with items such as wicker balls and a loofah
  • Straw
  • Bark

The ages of children are considered carefully in choosing items that are safe for them to explore.
