At CNS, bringing the natural world inside and engaging with our outdoor world via our playground is a very special part of our program.  In every classroom, nature abounds through materials and artifacts brought in to share with the classroom community.  Children are encouraged to bring in items from home or trips to share with their peers.

Outdoor play is an important part of each day at CNS, which includes water play and gardening activities via our water pump or our garden beds that are adjacent to each classroom .  In addition, we have a vegetable garden that is planted and maintained by the children throughout the spring and summer.
