Happy Hearts and Happy faces,
Happy play in grassy places---
That is how, in ancient ages,
Children grew to be kings and sages.
-----Robert Louis Stevenson
I am Lisa Grubbs, mother of 2, wife for 28 years, outdoor enthusiast, life long learner, and Early Childhood Educator at Clove Hill. After being a stay at home mom for a few years I returned to the corporate workforce until 2003 when I opened my in-home childcare. I soon realized outdoor play was not valued as it once was and an increasing number of Childcare programs were creating indoor playgrounds,eliminating outdoor play altogether, keeping children indoors. I focused my attention to creating an outdoor nature based learning environment that draws from various pedagogy such as Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio, and RIE approach to caring, nurturing and educating our youngest children in the community. Advocating the benefits of outdoor play for our children. I continue to grow and strive to learn and explore best practices in Early childhood education through various training and workshops.
