A week of gardening adventures at ylaa

A week of gardening adventures at ylaa


The week kicked off with excitement at both baby and preschool groups at ylaa Hauensteinstrasse, as children begun their journey into the world of gardening.

The preschoolers were introduced to basic botanical concepts through interactive storytelling and age- appropriate visuals.

Children boarded the tram and headed to the local garden center, where they could explore nature from a different aspect. Carefully chose seeds, pots, and soil for the flowers. The Wolves made sure to scan and pay for the items at the self- checkout, which enhanced children’s understanding of the world around them.

The following day, it was time to plant the seeds! Children could use small shovels, or their hands to put the soil into the pot, whilst exploring the composition and texture of the soil, which also benefited their hand and eye coordination and fine motor skills.

The preschool group embarked on a delightful excursion to a nearby garden, where they eagerly collected leaves from the ground for a leaf painting and mark making activity, ensuring the opportunity for children to express their creativity.

The Wolves group faced a challenged during their race, where they had to run and carry laminated vegetables and fruits from the garden, using a shovel. The unexpected wind required children even more to use their creativity and problem- solving skills, whilst cheering for each other next to the racetrack.

These activities didn’t just benefited children’s understanding of nature and gardening, but also developed essential skills, such as expanded their vocabulary, teamwork, resilience, and gross motor skills, laying the foundation for their growth and learning journey ahead.
