Nursery Adom took a short walk to Central Park last week! Students collected their fall foliage favorites - from pine cones to acorns to colorful leaves! The children searched their handouts to make sure they were able to collect each of the items they were looking for. Afterwards, they enjoyed snacks and played outdoor games. The visit to the park was an exciting way to help connect our students with mother nature during this beautiful time of year. They truly had a blast and are looking forward to their next visit to Central Park!
