Lyceum Preschool-Cultivating our Outdoor Classroom

Cultivating Our Outdoor Classroom
Wednesday, September 30th, 2015
Research continues to show the adverse effects of children's disconnection from nature and the positive gains possible when daily nature connections are supported. We at Lyceum understand the profound benefits children gain from daily access to natural outdoor environments. We are committed to designing, building, and ensuring the space is well equipped for open ended unstructured play. This outdoor space isn't a luxury, it is a necessity to insure our students get the most out of their preschool year. We understand the importance of bringing nature into the lives of our children and helping them to become independent learners.
