Our new Outdoor classroom in Winter Garden allows children to learn in an engaging way while spending time connecting with nature. When educators can tie outdoor play to preschool learning objectives, children can learn in an engaging way while spending time connecting with nature. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place October 28 at 10 am during the school’s fall event.
“In the age of technology and virtual connectivity, it is crucial that we understand the immense benefits that outdoor learning environments offer to our children’s education,” said Marnie Forestieri, CEO of Young Innovators. “ Research has shown that outdoor environments allow students to make curious observations and provide hands-on learning involving all the senses.”
The new outdoor classroom in Winter Garden offers young children the opportunity to connect with nature. “ When students are surrounded by the outdoors, they become first-hand witnesses to natural processes as direct observation is the first step in becoming a “natural scientist.” The Young Innovators outdoor curriculum offers children the opportunity to engage all their senses to explore nature, delight in the small things enlarged by a microscope, use binoculars to view birds, garden or build a fort with sticks.
“ We are excited to open our new outdoor classroom for adventures to allow our young innovators to watch, wonder and manipulate aspects of their experience to see what happens. Says Tytiana Watson, director at the Winter Garden location.
“Students entering the workforce will have to be ready for a constantly evolving job market. To succeed in a world of constant change, students entering the workforce will have to be self-directed, creative and independent. The Young Innovators curriculum taps into a child’s natural abilities as an innovator to preserve the creative confidence of the early years. Young Innovators Academy is a company built for educators by educators, providing childcare professionals with career and ownership opportunities to give women in the industry the respect they deserve.”
