There are so many benefits of play and play in nature. Connecting play to a theme allows children to make connections to the real world while integrating multiple traditional learning concepts into one activity.
For example, building a road with magna tiles allows children to incorporate math, language, dramatic play and science in one activity. Hands on activities reinforce learning concepts and connects children to the simulations of the real world.
Families will have the option to choose monthly theme-based kits that reinforce our nature-themed literature or individual toys that support play-based development.
