Why Nature Preschool?
Children and nature are old friends. Our nature-based programs utilize Emergent curriculum and are based on the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood where the child is respected as capable and curious.
Spending the majority of the day outdoors, we designed our outdoor learning environment to provide a comprehensive, engaging and sensory-rich play and learning opportunities.
What is Emergent Curriculum?
Our curriculum stems from the interests and skills of the individual child. We create experiences based on talking with children and families and what we know to be interesting to young children.
Our open-ended and hand’s on activities act as a jumping off point for the child that they can then use to construct their own knowledge.
How do Preschoolers Learn?
Preschool children learn best in active environments. They learn through play, with open-ended materials and uninterrupted time to develop their skills or understanding of a concept.
Young children should have the opportunity to make choices about which area they would like to visit and what activities they would like to do while there. Preschool age children learn through positive interactions with people that matter to them. They need the opportunity to interact in positive ways with the adults and children around them.
Encountering challenges is a part of their learning. Our teachers use a problem-solving approach to assist the child in learning how she might address the issue that she is experiencing.
Projects and Collaboration
Working on long-term, in-depth projects provides a thorough study of concepts and ideas. Our teachers act as advisors while the children are the architects.
Projects may last a week or two or the entire school year.
To strengthen and practice key cognitive skills such as communication, critical thinking, negotiation, and initiative, children are given multiple opportunities to work in small and large groups.
Each child is given a voice in order to promote balance between a sense of belonging to the group and a sense of self.

Nature Play Everyday
Our space is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, where play is valued as learning and the child is respected as capable and competent.
With the majority of the day spent outdoors, our approach is student-centered and constructivist, emphasizing self-directed, experiential learning in relationship-driven environments.
A child-guided curriculum allows your child to explore their own interests and ideas, create their own plans and projects, and develop confidence in themselves and respect for the natural world.
Green Space Nature Preschool believes in the sanctity of childhood.
We respect early childhood as a valuable period in its own right and create space for development to unfold naturally, rather than rushing on to the next milestone.
We designed our program so children spend the day in a curated play and learning space with the guidance of an early childhood specialist.
