NOLA Nature School now offers weekday classes that run Monday - Friday. The program will be open to children beginning at age 3 all the way through Kindergarten. Our program focus on developmentally appropriate practices and providing and environment for children to learn by doing and through play. Our math, science, and literacy lessons are integrated in the explorations and wonderings of the students.
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 by creating a solid foundation with which to base later academic learning.
