Our Approach

The Forest Kindergarten Model

Opening Eyes to Nature: The Nursery School’s mission is to connect young children with their natural world through exploration, inquiry and investigation. The focus of our preschool is to provide high-quality early childhood experiences that meet each child’s developmental needs, while fostering their natural curiosity. The Nursery School offers a nurturing learning environment, experienced teachers, and unique, hands-on learning opportunities that help build the foundation for all future development.

Our 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. Children also begin to develop a greater understanding of how the world around them works, and their place in it.
