Tiny Green Thumbs

Exploring all that nature has to offer is a part of every day at Learn ‘n Grow Early Childhood Education Center. They walk the nature trails, go on scavenger hunts, learn about the different plants and animals that thrive in each season and now they’ve added a garden to their nature-based learning. 

This summer, students in the summer child care program planted several vegetables and the kids are now seeing it all come to life! Right now, green beans are in season. The kids go out and pick them from the outdoor garden area. The kids have also planted cucumbers and pumpkins and are anxiously awaiting their arrival this fall. That garden was made possible by a grant from the Otsego Public Schools Foundation.
