Children love animals and nature- its a simple fact. Growing up with hands on experience of the nature is an important way for children to understand the world around them. We help the children in our care to open their eyes and really focus on all the wonderful things happening around them. A leaf that has been nibbled by a very hungry caterpillar, a snail hiding in a little crevice in a wall and a small bud on a twig which is going to grow into a beautiful flower. We collect, take photographs and research what we have found, and then we go out and look for more. Once a childs curiosity has been fostered they want to do it again and again.
