Spring has Sprung!

Spring has finally arrived at Little Tulips Family Child Care! The weather is warming up and we have been able to get outside and do some gardening!

Gardening is an exciting activity for all children. We embrace any opportunity for hands-on learning, and exploring nature is a perfect example of that.  Because our program includes children with and without special needs, we plan our activities to cover a broad range of developmental levels, always with a focus on sensory experiences.

This week, we got our hands dirty. We dug holes, spread soil, selected plants and flowers and decided where they would go. We tucked them in and covered their roots, then sprinkled the soil with water. Our children were involved in every step, and they loved every minute of it! Every day we check on our flowers to see how they are doing.

Our children are proud of our garden, and the work that they put into it. We are proud of them for all of their effort and enthusiasm!
