Host Andrew Bartolotta sits down with Jena Jauchius, a Landscape Architect and Nature Play Expert with N is for Nature Play.
Jena shared her insights into the importance of sensory-rich nature play in the growth and development of children. From the seven sensory systems in children to how nature play and nature connection can positively impact their overall health and well-being, Jena enlightened us about the innate wisdom of children and how we can tap into it.
Our discussion ranged from how children today are ‘wired differently’ to the multi-sensory magic of nature play spaces like fairy gardens and mud kitchens.
We also explored the significant role of social and nature connections in children’s lives, and Jena gave us an inside look into her own sensory garden at home. A fascinating conversation for anyone interested in children’s development and the potential of the great outdoors!
