Nature Preschool offers experiences typically found in child-centered programs such as discovery-based learning through play, sensory exploration, large and fine motor activities, creative expression, making friends and developing social skills. What is unique about Nature Preschool is that we use the natural world as a catalyst for children’s growth and development. Children have daily experiences outdoors in the play areas and on the Chippewa Nature Center property. The children regularly hike to wooded areas, ponds, fields and the Homestead Farm. In other words, they’re learning in the context of nature. Based upon seasonal changes, the curriculum includes art, music, social and cognitive skill development, gross and fine motor skill development and natural science exploration. Children will build their knowledge through first-hand experiences with nature, classroom materials and their relationships with peers and adults.

If you would like your child to attend Nature Preschool for the 2024-2025 school year, please complete this placement request. Placements for alumni and returning families will begin on January 2 while placements for new families will begin February 1. Requests received prior to the placement date will be pooled and students will be placed in sessions by lottery. Requests received after the placement date will be placed in the order they are received based on availability of sessions. You will receive a confirmation email upon completion of your placement request. Please be sure to fully check out by clicking the red "complete order" button to submit your request.
