Nature and the Healthy Development of Children
Children are constantly linking the outside world with their internal feelings/emotions and expanding their thoughts and understanding of the world. Here at Ricks, we provide opportunities for our students to explore and play within the natural world using their own ideas and self-direction. These experiences are essential for the healthy development of an internal sense of wellbeing in children.
