Natural Start Preschool offers a unique nature based curriculum that combines traditional school readiness learning with appropriate play-based preschool activities. Our curriculum focuses on the whole child by promoting physical, emotional, social, creative, cognitive, and linguistic growth.
At Natural Start Preschool, children learn about nature through direct experience, exploration, and discovery of the world around them. The natural world is a guiding theme in all areas of curriculum, including:
Math and manipulative activities
Language and literacy
Perceptual and cognitive skills development
Large and small motor activities
Exercise and movement
Block building and carpentry
Most importantly, daily outdoor exploration and play
Our preschool curriculum also incorporates a variety of learning activities related to health, nutrition, and physical fitness, all of which are designed to educate and inspire children toward a love of nature and a lifetime of good health and wellness. Our students learn about the importance of eating healthy, nutritious foods, and we offer periodic natural health and nutrition classes to our preschool families. We believe that it is never too early to begin teaching children about these fundamental building blocks that are necessary to a vital and healthy lifestyle.
"Time in nature is not leisure time; it's an essential investment in our children's health"
