Our mission is to connect children to nature and their community by engaging them in the natural world through exploration and social-emotional development.
Our curriculum aims for hands-on, experiential learning outdoors. We emphasize:
Arrival: Children explore. Teachers share the plan for the day.
Activity: Usually something related to what is going on in nature or what the children have shown an interest in.
Adventure/Hike: We have access to forest, hills, sand pits, beaches climbing trees, and a creek.
Snack/Lunch: Packed in a (squirrel-proof) backpack or lunch sack, brought from home. We eat in a circle and commune together.
Closing Circle: This is where we reflect as a group and share our experience of the day.
