Abstract
Prvi korak u izradi vrta u dječjem vrtiću je imati podršku od odgojitelja, administracije, volontera i donatora. Zašto trebate vrt? Koju korist će imati od vrta djeca u predškolskoj ustanovi? Potrebno je temeljiti dokaze na istraživanjima i zanimljivostima koje ilustriraju kako doticaj s prirodom i vrtlarstvo obogaćuju nastavni plan i program, potiču dječji interes za učenje, svijest o važnosti kvalitete hrane i razvijaju socijalne vještine. Upoznavanje djece u ranoj i predškolskoj dobi s vrtlarenjem budi u njih cjeloživotnu strast za biljke i poštovanje prema okolišu. Vrtlarstvo od najranije dobi: gradi razumijevanje prema prirodi i okolišu motivira djecu da jedu i vole voće i povrće omogućuje učenje iz prve ruke, ispitivanje, opažanje i eksperimentiranje promiče tjelesnu aktivnost i kvalitetu iskustva koje se stječe u prirodi uči djecu da kroz njegovanje i brigu za živa bića (biljke) razvijaju strpljenje. Vrt pruža, kroz neposredno iskustvo, mnoštvo mogućnosti za prakticiranje osnovnih matematičkih pojmova kao što su izračuni, usporedbe i mjerenja. Vrtovi su živi laboratoriji gdje se znanje stječe iz neposrednog iskustva i potiču djecu da postanu aktivni sudionici u procesu učenja.

The first step in starting a preschool garden program is to really support from preschool teachers, administrators, volunteers and funders. Why do you need a garden? How will it benefit the youth in your preschool communiti? Point to research based evidence and anecdotes that illustrate how the hands-on nature of gardening can enrich the curriculum, improve kids interestin learning, encourage them to eat well, and develop social skills. Introducing children to gardening instills a life-long passion for plants and respect for the environment. Youth gardens: build understanding of and respect for nature and our environment motivate kids to eat and love fruits and vegetables provide opportunities for hands-on learning, inquiry, opservation and experimentation promote physical activity and quality outdoor experiences teach kids to nature and care for other living things while developing patience. The garden provides a plethora of opportunities to practice basic mathematical functions such as calculations, comparisons, and measurments using hands-on activities. Gardens are living laboratories where interdisciplinary lessons are drawn from real life experiences, encouraging children to became active participants in the learning process.
