The J Naturescape Sunday Hours and Guidelines

Naturescape on the Sundays

The J Naturescape is a miniature natural landscape with rolling hills, stone walls for climbing, gardens, water play, natural rock piles, loose parts of constructing things and so much more. If you've ever climbed trees, rolled down hills, made mud pies, dug in the sand, or jumped into a pile of leaves, you've experienced natural play. We believe every child needs and deserves that experience! Kids today spend more time than is healthy watching TV, playing gaming devices, and living sedentary lives in a culture favoring strict, regimented play versus natural exploration. Richard Louv has coined the term “Nature Deficit Disorder”, referring to the assortment of behavioral problems children are exhibiting when they are not acquainted with the out of doors. In the last two decades childhood has moved indoors, profoundly affecting the wellness of our nation’s kids. Our children are missing something essential to their health and development: a connection to the natural world.
