The ENC Nature Preschool Mission

To provide quality early childhood education through hands on experience with Nature.

Our Vision

The ENC Nature Preschool will educate up to 72 children daily, engage parents in active learning, serve as a model nature preschool and provide a research forum on early childhood and environmental education.

Our Educational Philosophy

ENC Nature Preschool is a developmental play-based emergent curriculum where children’s ideas, inquiries, discoveries, and investigations are nurtured and implemented. With hands-on daily experiences children acquire a deep intuitive understanding of nature and the natural world. Engagement in the environment and with others is where real learning occurs. Attributes of the Outdoor Classroom Project, Reggio Emilia and Waldorf approaches contribute to the curriculum foundation.
