Preschoolers on the bridge at Nature's Way Preschool

Nature's Way Preschool Welcome to Nature's Way Preschool!

At 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.   

There are still limited spaces for enrollment for the 2021-22 school year in the 3 day classes.

Helpful tips for enrollment:

If the class you would like to register for is full, you can still register and automatically be placed on the waitlist.

 A one month, non refundable deposit will be collected at the time of enrollment. The deposit will be applied as your last payment for the school year.

If you will be registering different children for different classes: Register the first child. When you reach the end of registration you will see your shopping cart with price totals. At the bottom of this page is a button that says ‘Keep Shopping’. Click this to return to the list of camps and register subsequent children.

If you would like to apply for financial aid, please fill out the form here. Please contact the school at 269-343-7342 or HGoetzinger@naturecenter.org if you have any questions.
