A nature based early learning center

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

Vision:
The ENC Nature Preschool educates 72 children daily, engages parents in active learning, serves as a model nature preschool and provides a research forum on early childhood and environmental education.

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.
