About A Childs Inspiration Wildlife Discovery Garden
A Child's Inspiration Wildlife Discovery Garden's mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating natural environment. We provide a natural environment which immerses others in a warm, joyful, creative, and safe natural experience. We learn in a holistic way. We empower children through creativity and discovery to think for themselves while considering others and the world around. We believe in a balance between independence and structure. We stress the importance of respecting and honoring all individuals, and all nature. A Child's Inspiration Wildlife Discovery Garden is a resource for environmental education programming. We encourage a love and respect for our environment and natural world. We work towards a commitment to the conservation of our environment and natural world through discovery and engagement of stewards and nature heroes. A Child's Inspiration is a natural resource that is being preserved and maintained to act as a demonstration site. It is our hope that we will be able to pass along the love of learning and conservation of our shared environment and the natural world. We believe that regular connections with the natural world encourage children to develop: • Respect for local cultures and climates and for themselves as a part of nature. • Feelings of unity, peace and well-being as global citizens. We believe it is important for children to: • Be respected as competent, powerful learners and risk- takers who have a voice in what they create and learn through nature. • Be supported in developing life skills through holistic nature-based learning. We believe it is important for families to: • Understand the value of children’s daily connections with nature. • Support children’s appropriate risk-taking and exploration in nature. • Enjoy regular experiences in the natural world with their children. We believe it is important for educators to: • Allow enough time each day for children to explore freely in nature-based spaces. • Support children’s appropriate risk-taking and adventurous play in nature. • Provide children with opportunities for silence and contemplation in natural settings. • Encourage children’s development of a sense of wonder and a sense of environmental stewardship. “Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets; and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education.” "One has that magical capacity to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen consciously to the soughing of the trees."
