Outdoor Classroom is an important part of the Early Childhood curriculum. Children learn by interacting with their environment and nature. The element of play, exploration and natural discovery of the physical world around them is We gather in the gazebo or treehouse in Lili’s Garden and learn about nature, seasons, animals, plants and trees. Our young children need to learn early to appreciate our earth and the outdoors close to home. Lili’s Garden is designed with a child in mind. We have perennial, wildflower, herb, lily, above and below the ground vegetable, butterfly and five sense sections in our garden.
Our Conservatory and raised garden beds provide fertile ground for horticural education as well as a venue for science exploration. Field studies are conducted at nature centers in the community. In addition, we have two nature trails at the High School campus, which each class enjoys discovering several times throughout the year.
