Advantages and Benefits of Nature-Based Education

Children naturally wonder about the world around them. A nature-based educational experience combines the very best in learning opportunities. Nature school is hands-on, facilitates a sense of curiosity, encourages problem-solving and builds social skills including teamwork. And it instills a lifelong understanding, appreciation and value of our natural world. Elachee Nature Academy uses a child-directed, discovery-based curriculum to instruct young students in developmentally appropriate and meaningful ways.
