The Nursery School
Where Nature Is Our Classroom
in Denver, Colorado
The Nursery School is a Denver-based forest school that operates at Bluff Lake Nature Center in Stapleton. Children learn through their interactions with the natural space and each other. Using tools and materials to enrich their experience, each child directs their own learning, making it more meaningful to them.
3 or 5 hours
Our outdoor preschoolers learn by doing. They explore their environment, investigate the flora and fauna, work collaboratively with others, and develop the skills and knowledge they need to enter kindergarten.
We offer two class options.
3 Hour Class: 8:30 am – 11:30 am
5 Hour Class: 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
We focus on self-help skills and social-emotional development. Your child will gain independence and confidence, as we explore a world of wonder and possibility. Our classroom is 123 acres of pure nature. At school we see deer, wild turkey, coyote and more birds than you can imagine.
