The nusery school was named a WILD School Site by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. To achieve this distinction, the school demostrated that the efforts of teachers, students and the school community benefitted wildlife through habitat improvement projects accomplished on the school grounds.
Nature education has been at the core of the nursery school’s curriculum since its founding. The completed Wild School Site project provides a beautiful outdoor classroom setting rich in opportunities to observe, explore, and care for plants and wildlife.
The school grounds have also been certified a monarch waystation by Monarch Watch and observing the monarch lifecycle has become an integral part of the school’s fall nature curriculum. In 2018, the school reared and released more than 50 butterflies.
We welcome all interested families to join us at local parks to simply walk, explore, discover and enjoy the great outdoors in our Family Nature Club.
In the “Last Child in the Woods, Saving our children from Nature Deficit Disorder”, author Richard Louv, shares current research showing “direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development.”
