Field Trips

Preschoolers are always busy exploring their world and field trips to area locations such as Peppino’s Restaurant to make pizza, the RAPID bus depot to learn about public transportation, Radiant Sportz for exercise, and our new partnership with Blandflord Nature Center to learn all about nature in every season, are an exciting extension to the curriculum.  The learning continues as the dramatic play area often transforms to reflect the most recent trip with the pizza parlor being a perennial favorite.

Research supports this approach to early childhood education; extensive educational research demonstrates that nature supports children’s intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development.  Being outdoors supports creativity and problem-solving, enhances cognitive abilities, increases physical activity, and improves social relationships and self-discipline.
