What our organization offers: 
Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Welcoming your child as we slow down, get curious, and discover. Our mission is to foster experiences in the natural world that cultivate curiosity, well-being and stewardship. Developing an understanding of community and each individual’s role within it, is at the heart of our programs. Children continue to grasp the interconnection of all life, from the natural world to human communities to an individual’s family and one’s self. This approach helps each child gain a sense of stewardship for all communities around them. Through nature-immersion, the outdoors will serve as a classroom where children can learn, challenge themselves and grow at their own pace. We encourage critical thinking, celebrate creativity and promote individual learning as well as the group process. With talented teachers and nature’s rhythms as guides, the well-being of each child is nurtured and a solid sense of belonging is fostered as they explore, create and take risks in a safe environment.
