Nature-based preschool programs for children aged 5 and younger 

Educational Philosophy

Children are born naturalists! They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them. Children's inherent curiosity about the world is supported by hands-on, nature-based activities which foster empathy, resiliency, and confidence. Our 40 acre nature sanctuary serves as a natural venue for language, artistic, and musical expression as well as scientific observations and discoveries. Our preschool teachers plan age-appropriate activities that integrate science, math, literacy, and the arts while encouraging cooperative learning and social competence. There is so much joy to experience every day…naturally!
