Carol Mitchell, on right, is substituting for preschool teachers and helping out her daughter, Jess Caylor, left, our director of early childhood education. For more than a year, Mitchell has been wrangling the little naturalists at the Nature Preschool with great skill and loving kindness. She said, “It’s so heartwarming to see how much these young children enjoy their time spent outdoors and being so interested in nature. It takes me back to when I was a young girl when being outside was how we spent most of our time having fun!” Thanks Carol, for helping out your daughter and the preschool!
