Nature-Based Preschool for 4 Year Olds
NorthPointe Christian's Nature-Based Preschool is a program centered on outdoor learning where God's creation is at the heart. Students split time between their outdoor classroom and indoor classroom. Our partnership with Blandford Nature Center enriches this program and includes monthly field trips to Blandford and monthly visits from one of their Nature-Based teachers.
Like all other NPC programs, Nature-Based learning has the foundation of a Christ-centered, high-quality education, with the same academic, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual development goals.
In a Nature-Based school, these goals are accomplished through experiences in and with the natural world. Four year-old Preschool students will be in the outdoor classroom for half of their morning on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Outdoor play and nature-based discovery form the backbone of the curriculum and drive indoor classroom activities. Preschoolers will start their morning in the outdoor classroom and then transition indoors for snack and activity centers that further enhance their outdoor learning.
Benefits of Nature-Based Education
Nature is powerful in shaping a child’s development. Research reveals that the outdoor classroom encourages creativity and problem solving, improves academic performances, and ignites curiosity and wonder!
Nature-Based Preschool meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings.
Students may choose to enroll for only those mornings or up to 5 full days.
