Early Ecology

"Children are born with a sense of wonder and an affinity for Nature.  Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living."

-Zenobia Barlow

Ages 3- 4 years (3 years old by July 1st)

This program incorporates early learning best practices and ecology education to create a holistic learning experience specifically designed for children ages 3-5. We use storytelling, nature and mindfulness games, free play, expressive arts and social mentoring to nourish children's relationship to self, to one another and to the natural world.  

"This is what's missing in our modern lifestyles. It's our children's birthright!"
