Forest School

Year-round,  school day program for children ages 2-7

At Nature Nuts, we have fun exploring the forest with friends from treetops to dirt and puddles with slugs and bugs and birds and squirrels in between. In addition to the forest, we also have extensive gardens for children to learn to grown their own vegetables and flowers. We believe that hands-on learning is the best educational approach for children. Being outdoors provides them with not only fresh air; it encourages imaginative play, creativity, hand-eye coordination, balance, physical strength and mental clarity. A story and light snack is provided during class.  More information about our education model can be found here.
