All About Us (and everything we do)

​"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words come down like dew, like raindrops on new grass, like rain on tender plants." Deuteronomy 32:2

Mission Statement
 

To provide a high quality preschool program that encourages a child's growth academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.

It is through our school bible verse, Galatians 5:22: "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control", that we meet those goals.

Important MOTOR skills
 

Fine motor skills- essential for writing in the future: playdough, painting, digging in dirt!

Gross motor skills- a huge missing skill in so many kids (why do so many kids need some sort of therapy?!?!?) Riding bikes, climbing on rocks, nature hikes, balancing, running. Kids need 2-3 hours of THIS each DAY!

Philosophy
 

Modeled after the prevalent nature schools in other countries, we employ educated teachers specially trained in science and outdoor learning environments. Child-led curiosity and exploration encourages our students to have a passion and love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Let them be LITTLE!
 

Preschool is the single most important time in a child's life! Not only does it set up students for a successful Kindergarten experience, but for a lifetime of emotional, academic, physical and social success! 

 

There is TOO much pressure in society right now; my child can count to 100, well my child can read. Guess what? NONE of that is important!

Simplicity is key- they will learn to read, they will learn to write- but LET THEM BE LITTLE!

Ms. Vanessa, the lead instructor, has obtained her:
