“The earth is firm beneath my feet, the sun shines bright above
and here I stand so straight and strong, all things to know and love”
Children thrive and are nurtured by the familiarity of rhythm. Here at Little Poppies Playgarden rhythm is the primary means of balancing a child’s need for healthy growth. Knowing what to expect and what comes next gives children a sense of security and confidence. From daily activities, and stories, to the songs we sing, our curriculum is based on the rhythm of the seasons. We eat organic foods and we play with natural and imaginative toys. We are actively digging, baking bread, and building forts while learning to work together and experiencing imaginative play.
Little Poppies Playgarden offers a multi-age program that allows plenty of opportunities for older children to model expectations and skills for the younger ones while themselves learning patience, flexibility, and the role and responsibility of leadership. For the younger child they are surrounded by role models that “show them the way”, plenty of helping hands when “things are hard”, and a glimpse of “what is to come”.
