Gardening gives children a wealth of knowledge, skills and experiences. It offers opportunities to grow and care for seeds and plants, to observe and record how they grow and to discover, perhaps, why they didn't grow! An outdoor area is not a prerequisite - many of the activities can be carried out inside. These fun, easy-to-use ideas can be used in all early years settings, from preschools and nurseries to reception classes and day nurseries.
