March 21st is the first day of Spring. And, the children of Brooksfield Montessori School, located in McLean, Virginia, are making the most of the temperate weather. Children in the preschool Montessori program, the Kindergarten Montessori program and the elementary Montessori program spend time working not only inside the classroom, but outside on the five gorgeous, sprawling acres of the school campus. The school grounds provide the perfect place for nature walks, soccer games, scavenger hunts, outdoor dance and movement, P.E., playground play, art and all kinds of exploration. So, as the flowers bloom and the sun begins to warm the earth, take a page from Brooksfield’s book…get outside with your children and explore the beauty and tranquility Mother Nature has to offer.
