Taking the children to explore nature in the Alphen greenbelt this week gave them time to feel the sun, fresh air and cool water on their bodies. Away from their troubled home environments they were free to play in clean water and wonder about the creatures that live in the streams and forests. Lameck was thrilled to discover that he could balance on a fallen log and jump into the water. Encouraging a child to see the beauty of little things in creation helps to keep the sense of wonderment alive. From this new ideas, creativity and talents emerge.
When COLT children arrive at the Educare each morning they know that they are in a safe, nurturing environment with a predictable routine, where learning is fun!
