The fall season has so much to offer for early learners. With leaves changing color and temperatures cooling, it's a perfect time of year to engage kids in hands-on exploration and discovery.

Autumn activities support development of early learning skills in many ways:

  • The colors, sounds and smells of autumn contribute to sensory learning.
  • Colorful leaves can be used in crafts fro creative and fin motor play.
  • Expanding vocabulary to name colors builds language skills.
  • Nature walks provide gross motor activities.
  • Observing changes in nature supports science and math.
