Gardening is a Key Focus for Preschoolers

Preschool Activities Include Gardening

Gardening is a Preschool Activity
Gardening is a key focus for preschoolers at Honey Bear Preschool and Child Care, and this spring our students have begun by planting seedlings. We are teaching them how to grow their own food, take care of something other than themselves and work cooperatively toward a common goal. Our preschool children love the process and are checking their gardens daily.

Why is gardening important?

Gardening is important for three year old preschoolers, four year old preschoolers and even five year olds because gardening elicits productive play in children by providing an interactive environment to observe, discover, experiment, nurture and learn. And they do this cooperatively and are learning how to follow directions in a positive nurturing environment.

Preschool Activities Include Gardening

Honey Bear Preschool gardens are living science labs where interdisciplinary lessons are drawn from real life experiences. Our total engagement of the learning and perceptual process encourages our preschool children to become active learners with lessons and activities that “stick”.

Honey Bear Preschool and Child Care gardens encourage our students to choose fruits and vegetables. They increase children’s and parents’ support and are just a few steps away from the classroom and so can be integrated into daily activities easily.
