Preserving the Chicopee Woods for Future Generations
In the fall of 2013 we anticipate opening our long awaited Nature Preschool. The preschool will be a state licensed program whose goal is to immerse young children in a nature-based curriculum designed to teach environmental awareness and early childhood education concepts through nature play.
To ensure our students will receive educational experiences that are in line with the best practices of early childhood education, our preschool programs will be lead by a team of staff trained in Environmental Education and certified in Early Childhood Education. By offering programs that encourage self-initiated exploration to children who are in their most formative years, our goal is to help children develop a love of nature and discovery at a natural and individualized pace.
