Who Should Join?

  • Children who are 3-6 years who thrive outdoors or are looking to gain more outdoor experience.

  • Caregivers seeking a supportive community and opportunities to forge lasting friendships.

  • Families desiring to enrich their child’s sensory development and natural curiosity.

  • Anyone interested in integrating the magic and wonder of nature into their child’s weekly routine through a Waldorf-inspired, nature immersion methodology.

 

Why Join NATURE EXPLORERS?

  • Dynamic Outdoor Learning: Each class takes place entirely outdoors, allowing children to learn in the most natural classroom. Whether it's raining, snowing, or sunny, we adapt by setting up shelters, making every session comfortable and engaging.

  • Seasonal Themes: Our curriculum is tailored to the changing seasons, with activities centered around themes like animal behaviors, weather patterns, ecological jobs, and natural phenomena. This seasonal approach keeps the learning experience fresh and exciting all year long.

  • Interactive and Fun: Get ready to get messy! Our classes encourage physical play—jumping, spinning, digging, and more. We blend storytelling, song, and movement to create magical learning experiences that captivate the imagination.

  • Program Schedule & Commitment

    Nature Explorers is organized into three semesters, each specifically designed to maximize children's engagement with the seasonal changes in our natural environment:

    • Fall Season (September to December): Delve into the autumnal wonders and prepare for the approaching colder months with activities that celebrate the essence of fall.

    • Winter Season (January to March): Explore the crisp, cool weather with activities that highlight the unique beauty and challenges of the winter landscape.

    • Spring/Summer Season (April to July): Experience the burst of life during the spring and early summer, full of vibrant, engaging activities that mirror the season's energy.

    We take short breaks in August and December to refine our curriculum and plan for the upcoming semesters, ensuring each one is filled with innovative and exciting educational opportunities.***

     

    Maximize the Learning Journey

    To provide a comprehensive and immersive nature-based learning experience, each semester is structured as a 12-16 week series. Enrolling in all three series is strongly recommended. This extended engagement allows your child to fully integrate and apply the knowledge and skills they acquire, ensuring a more impactful educational experience. Continuous exposure to nature throughout the year not only enhances their learning but also deepens their appreciation and understanding of the environmental cycles.

    Embrace the full scope of our Nature Explorers program by committing to a year of discovery and growth. Join us in fostering a profound connection with the natural world, season by season.

    Our Commitment to Outdoor Learning

    Our Little Sprouts classes are held entirely outdoors, utilizing sheltered areas during inclement weather to ensure comfort and safety. This outdoor setting enriches the learning experience, fostering a unique bond between your family and the natural world.
