It’s a beautiful experience teaching preschoolers in the garden and watching them connect with nature

The button below is a beautiful webpage which has inspired Natural Choice Nurseries to conduct preschool appropriate garden lessons in ways that grow their positive garden association into an understanding of basic science, art, and social studies concepts.
