Oak Ridge Nature School Students

Fall is quickly approaching. You find yourself searching for preschool or kindergarten options for your child, everyone is asking where you'll be sending your son or daughter to school this fall. Maybe their daycare provider has hinted that they're outgrowing their program because they don't nap anymore, or struggle with boredom. Maybe you've done the kindergarten screening at your local district and tried the part-time preschool program and it just wasn't as impressive as you thought it would be.

You've probably heard the words "Nature School" being tossed around. Your neighbor, cousin, or old high school friend is sharing how much they love the nature school their child goes to. They share how happy their child is, talk about everything they learn, how much freedom they have, and all of the outdoor time they get each day.

After a quick Google or Facebook search of "nature schools near me", you found yourself browsing Oak Ridge Nature School. You've clicked around a bit on the website, swiped through dozens of photos on our Facebook page, read all of the reviews, and researched the benefits of nature-based education. You're thinking this might be exactly what you and your child need. You're excited.

Now you're asking yourself "Why Oak Ridge Nature School?"

At Oak Ridge Nature School, we believe that children deserve more than just a daycare experience. That is why we offer a unique approach to early childhood education that focuses on providing children with a true nature exposure.

Our program is designed to immerse children in the natural world, and through this immersion, children develop their brains, make sense of their thoughts, and develop life-skills using non-traditional schooling methods. Unlike today's kindergarten readiness checklists, mediocre worksheets, and compliance training, we believe that nature immersion and forest schooling provide a more effective and holistic approach to education.

At Oak Ridge Nature School, children spend their days exploring the woods, learning about the plants and animals that call our natural environment home, and engaging in hands-on activities that help them develop their senses, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Our daily flow is inspired by the natural world, and we encourage children to use their imagination and curiosity to explore their surroundings.

Your child's teachers are highly trained and passionate about the benefits of nature-based education. We work tirelessly to create a warm and welcoming environment for children to learn and grow. We believe that by providing children with a true nature experience, we are setting them up for success in all aspects of their lives.

Oak Ridge Nature School is not just a place where children come to pass the time; it is an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Through their daily interactions at nature school, your children develop a deep love and respect for nature, and they learn important life skills such as independence, problem-solving, and self-confidence.
