I got out for my first field trip in ages a couple of weeks ago with just under 40 three to six-year olds. We took the group down to the islands botanical garden, which is a few acres of land hidden in the middle of town which, show cases the extensive variety of plants and greenery native to these parts. An outsider may not be that impressed with the simplicity of the park, but for us islanders is doesn’t take a whole lot of green space to feel like a luxury. And for the children, it’s a great place for them run, whilist still being contained enough for us to keep tabs on. Although the morning was unseasonable hot, ruling out any unshaded playtime, the children seemed to be quite content exploring the natural side of the BVI.
