Let the Herbs Grow

The benefits of gardening with young children are great. Research carried out by the RHS found that babies and children encouraged to take part in gardening activities become more resilient, confident, eager to learn and have healthier life styles. It also found that gardening had a positive impact on children’s literacy and numeracy development and that it led to a more active, inquisitive approach to learning and improved problem solving skills. As you know we do spend a lot of time outdoors at Oakwood and gardening is a topic we love, the babies have enjoyed planting herb plants and seeds in the baby garden as part of the sensory garden.
