As the colder months are headed towards us and the summer is dying down, the Infant Toddler Room said one last goodbye to the garden as the last tomatoes and carrots were pulled and eaten. It was a good and valuable experience not just for the children but also for the staff in the room. What we couldn't teach the children about gardening and the new experience of it, they taught us that even though it was such a small activity at first it grew into something bigger and more exciting for everyone. As we pulled the last of the tomato plants out of the garden, the children were able to see how the plans grew and stuck into the ground by the big roots. As we put the roots down on the ground the children gathered around all curious as to what they were. We let them explore what was different for them by looking at them and some of the children even got down on the ground to touch them and take a closer look. This was a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved!
