Preschoolers on the bridge at Nature's Way Preschool

Welcome to Nature's Way Preschool!

Nature's Way Preschool logoAt Nature’s Way Preschool, we foster a caring and positive atmosphere in which children can learn.  As we bridge the gap from home to school, we offer opportunities for children to connect with nature while developing the needs of the whole child. Through exploration and hands-on activities that are both child-centered and teacher-directed, we introduce social, emotional and physical skills as well as language and math competencies. Theme- related activities emphasize the process rather than the product and foster a sense of accomplishment.   < LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PHILOSOPHY & HISTORY OF NATURE'S WAY
