In Fall of 2018, NOLA Nature School will begin weekday classes that run Monday - Friday. The program will be open to children beginning at age 3 all the way through Pre-k 4. We will be posting frequent updates to this page, including the application for enrollment, gear list, and other important forms. 

CURRICULUM

Our curriculum is informed by the principles of place-based education, the philosophy of Reggio Emilia, and integrates principles of the project approach. We give children to support they need to be intellectually curious, socially and emotionally aware, and compassionate individuals.

Addressing the many domains of children's development means that our program prepares children for success after success in their kindergarten programs.

Upon clicking the link, the application will open as an interactive PDF.
You may fill it out and email it once completed to clare@nolanatureschool.com.
Alternately, you may send it via regular mail (if you wish to do the latter, contact us beforehand).

This is an ‘application’ instead of a ‘registration’ in order to allow further conversation
about what NOLA Nature School is, entails, and to ensure it is a good fit.

Upon receiving a completed application we will schedule an in-person interview
where we can meet you, your child, and have a conversation to
determine if NOLA Nature School is indeed the right option for your child. 

Admissions decisions will be sent out within a week after the interview.
Health records and other forms will be provided upon admission.

Thank you for your interest in NOLA Nature School! We look forward to speaking with you.
