Welcome to Cape Cod's first certified Nature Explore outdoor classroom! Dirt digging, building, sand play, messy materials, play house, wood working, dream area, music tree and stage challenge children daily to develop skills and play. Not only do our children have fun, learn conflict resolution and sharing, they also have the opportunity to reconnect with the beauty and opportunity of nature!
Through play in nature settings, children – especially those children who struggle with traditional education methods – observe, learn and correlate information; socially coordinate with others; experience geometry concretely; orient themselves in spatial activities (being aware of your place in space) and develop creativity through unstructured improvisation and expression.
Nature Explore is a joint venture of the Arbor Day Foundation and the Dimensions Educational Research Foundation and is grounded on the research that Dimensions has been conducting since 1998.
