I am so excited to be part of the Gardening Team for Kids in the Garden at The Educator’s Spin On It. As an early childhood educator for 12 years, I have always loved gardening with children. It is one of my favorite parts of the year. A few years ago, I had the pleasure of creating a Preschool Garden with my co-teacher at our urban public school. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I had in all my 12 years of teaching and I hope to encourage you to try starting a preschool garden with these 10 tips.
I can’t stress enough how much fun a Preschool Garden can be. It can provide you and your preschoolers with so much fun while learning at the same time. From outside reading time to science experiments… The possibilities are endless!
