Shorelines are places where two worlds come together with amazing results. Since the beginning of time Shorelines have engaged and educated children about nature and life. Joanne Saunders teaches early childhood education and owns and operates two day-cares, but what distinguishes her from the rest is her personal philosophy that you can’t introduce kids to nature soon enough. Working with children as young as 18 months, Joanne keeps it simple by substituting playground equipment with nature’s own gifts. Lawrence Gunther explores with Joanne the importance of continuing the crucial developmental opportunity shorelines provide children of all ages in this episode of Blue Fish Radio.
