At SCCS, environmental stewardship and healthy habits are a large part of our curriculum. Beginning in preschool, our children learn science, math, and literacy concepts through deep, multi sensory learning with their class garden and the school gardens. Research shows that children who grow their own food are more likely to eat vegetables, which is nice bonus. Among the many benefits gardening offers includes that it fosters strong interpersonal skills and oral language development. In addition to wonderful parent volunteers, we are fortunate to partner with Mr. Matt of Palmetto Organics, who works with the children and teachers to foster learning and an appreciation for organic farming.
