More about Nature Sprites! Children have an innate desire to learn about and experience the life around them. Our Philosophy at Nature Sprites is to: -honor the whole child -make learning connections through time and experience with nature -take time to slow down and work with children at their pace -respect the unique differences and similarities in all children -support families and children and build community -create a space for child to feel safe, heard, and respected, where they can find confidence in themselves and learn tools to problem solve in their daily life, and where all needs are met to the best of our ability as educators Nature Sprites Pre-School endeavors to engage the children by learning through nature and their natural curiosity, sometimes seeing and learning through the eyes of animals. The children will learn to walk more softly on the earth and be stewards of the natural world. Our diverse curriculum includes practical life skills, animal and plant study, hiking, arts and crafts, science exploration, early literacy skills, story telling, music, movement, and games.

There is Jack the famous cat. He is a lovable old rag doll and is up to date on shots. We also have Molly a sweet and small dachshund beagle, who mostly likes to keep to herself. She sometimes accompanies us on walks but other than that she does not come in the children's spaces. It is quite common to have pets in home daycare. Many households have assorted pets (sometimes more than one) that are considered one-of-the-family. Children learn from being around animals. One important benefit is that children talk to animals, thereby having a way to deal with their feelings. In helping to take care of a pet, they also develop responsible behavior.
