For Prospective Families
At our Nature Preschool, we follow an emergent curriculum that is based on the seasons and takes into account the children’s interests and needs. In fall, we watch the monarchs migrating, learn why leaves change color and discover turtles basking on logs. In winter, we follow tracks in the snow and explore the ice-canos on the edge of Lake Michigan. In spring, we tap maple trees and delight in the discovery of new life in our ponds. Children develop and strengthen skills they will need for a successful transition to kindergarten while forming lasting connections to nature.
Join us for our Nature Preschool Open House on Saturday, January 18, 2020!
We have limited openings for 2019/20. Please contact Laurie Lukaszewicz, Preschool Coordinator, at email@example.com or 414-352-2880 x154 to discuss your interest.
