a typical day

Unlike most settings where children play indoors for the majority of the day, here at Little Blossoms, our children play outside for several hours, learning directly from nature. Typical daily activities include exploring the woods, collecting sticks and leaves, growing food, making dens, handling tools, using twigs to write in the mud, climbing trees and in the near future, cooking over open fires.


Through regular exposure to the outdoors and a child-centred approach, the children thrive by learning from their own discoveries and decisions, and by taking manageable risks during activities.
