Gardening is incorporated within each of our services. The children explore different elements of gardening and learning how to plant, grow and sow their own plants, fruit and vegetables. Once the fruit and vegetables are ripe, the children have the opportunity to taste them or they are given to our cooks in our centre kitchens for use in the children’s meals.
The benefits of gardening are expansive. The children investigate, explore and experiment, they learn to hypothesise and use trial and error to grow different types of plants. Gardening with the use of tools supports fine motor skills as well as turn taking.
Gardening is available at: All centre locations
