Question: What if I do not feel comfortable in nature?
Answer: That is okay. Many of the activities and lessons can be done inside. The beauty of cityLIFE is that it brings nature inside but encourages your to make your way into nature if you want to.
QUESTION: WHAT AGE GROUP ARE THE KITS RECOMMENDED FOR?
Answer: We suggest the kits for ages 6 through 10 years of age however, children have different strengths and weaknesses and so this age range should be taken only as a suggestion. The program is also easy to scale down as well as up.
Question: How is a Nature kit different from a Science Kit?
Answer: cityLIFE nature kits are created to stimulate curiosity about our natural world as well as stimulate their interests in other subjects. Many of the activities are open ended, meaning, the ending is all in where the child follows their interest in the subject that has been presented. In this way, cityLIFE nature kits inspire creative and critical thinking.
Question: Are all the activities done outside?
Answer: No, most of the lessons and activities can be done right in your own learning center. cityLIFE nature kits come with natural materials your child can use. There are suggestions on how to incorporate more outdoor time in the lessons for those looking to go outside more though.
Question: Why are the kits available only in a single month, why can't I have them all at once?
Answer: cityLIFE nature kits contain lessons that follow the seasons. The natural materials that are associated with each kit can only be collected during the time the kits are created. It is for these reasons that you can only purchase one or two months at a time.
Question: My child has a particular interest. Will cityLIFE create a custom kit for us?
Answer: Yes! cityLIFE will work with any learning community to create custom kits. However, this would incur an additional cost.
Question: I really want a kit but can not afford one right now.
Answer: Sign up for our free monthly newsletter that provides creative ideas that follow the same philosophies as our kits.
