Our beautiful outdoor classroom offers a wide variety of habitats – including forest, field, wetlands, and riverfront. Our goal is to spend at least 80% of your child’s day outside, learning through natural exploration. Our outdoor classroom has three areas with overhead shelter to protect from light rain and snow and will act as a homebase for our daily adventures. Our indoor classroom provides an engaging and safe space for activities during severe weather.

  • Children will develop a lifelong relationship with the outdoors through nature-based learning.
  • Free choice activities and guided experiences allow children to expand their math, science, and language skills while exploring learning in the natural world.
  • Children’s natural curiosity is encouraged through inquiry-based, multi-sensory activities.
