The Problem

Our preschool's goal is to connect young children back to nature, through discovery and education. Students learn how to care for the earth, including conservation education and activities that promote a feeling of community and friendship. It is our goal to reduce the amount of screentime young children have by encouraging outdoor play and exploration.

Our Plan

We are currently undergoing a large classroom remodel to provide more local young learners the opportunity to enroll in our program and connect to nature while learning to care for our planet! We want to make a classroom that is environmentally friendly, using resources that are responsibly resourced or recycled. A large part of our remodel is focused on bringing the outdoors indoors so that our explorations can continue once inside the classroom walls. We plan to create a large discovery center area with space for students to observe elements of nature and record their observations within their personal nature journals.
