Weather you are working in an Early childhood Education field or an childcare setting; children enjoy to explore and learn about nature and science. Exploring the soil, touching the different critters in the soil can be very educational. It also brings children together to communicate with each other and socialize about nature. "When you share your love of gardening with children you are planting the seeds of a lifelong passion. You can nurture that budding interest by keeping the focus on fun."
