Aarons Landscaping can transform your Early Learning Centre by installing garden beds and planter boxes.
If the outdoor play area at your Early Learning Center is in need of a renovation, why not consider having a garden bed or planter boxes?
Benefits of Garden beds & Planter Boxes
Gardening engages all the senses, making it ideal for young children. Gardening also encourages healthy eating as they become involved and invested in growing the food they eat. Scooping up dirt, planting seeds, and pouring water all take fine motor control and strength. These important motor skills help children improve their academic skills such as writing, cutting, and typing.
Gardening also introduces children to scientific concepts from many areas, like botany, biology, and earth science. Without even realizing it, kids are learning the basic steps of the scientific process while gardening. Gardening is also a great way to teach kids about responsibility. Kids learn that they have to take care of their seeds each day in order for them to become healthy plants.
Creating a gardening area with natural elements can have many benefits for your child. Research has shown us that children who spend more time outside tend to be more physically active and are less likely to be overweight. Also, children who play in natural settings are more resistant to stress, and have a lower incidence of behavioural disorders.
A garden bed will make your play area look more aesthetically pleasing, not just for children, but adults too. The introduction of beds and boxes add colour and depth to your play area, enhancing its appearance.
Rather than having a play area that is completely covered in cement or rubber, garden beds and planter boxes allow children to play in natural elements. Aarons Landscaping can work with you to design the perfect garden bed or planter boxes for your Early Learning Center.
