back to nature

For those of us who live in Manhattan, it's easy to get wrapped up on what classes to take or which playdate to schedule for your preschooler...instead of how to enjoy the great outdoors. Deborah McNelis, creator/owner of Braininsights and a brain development specialist, changes that with the launch of newest activity packet, Naturally Developing Young Brains, designed to support brain development for 3-5 year olds through natural environments.

Nearly 90% of brain development occurs in the first five years of life. To help maximize a child's learning during this influential time, this set of nature-themed exploration activities instills a sense of wonder, an appreciation for the environment and building blocks toward understanding the natural world.

Age appropriate and fun outdoor activities enhance early brain development and learning. Each nature-based activity in the packet also includes a brain insight on the back of the card, giving adults an understanding of the benefits gained through the experience.

These packets make it easy to provide the outdoor play children's brains need.

A portion of the proceeds go toward promoting nature pre-school experiences for all children. These can also be used as fundraisers for your program or organization.
