Unplugging is critical for young children. However, our increasingly technology-dependent society is losing sight of that need.
Elachee Nature Academy goes a leap further by providing our students access to nature.
We provide educational experiences in the classroom, yet spend more than 75-percent of the instructional day outdoors. This encourages natural curiosity and helps our young students better understand the natural world around them.
Elachee Nature Academy’s experienced educators strive to integrate these strategies into their daily lessons:
We use a positive discipline approach to behavior management at Elachee Nature Academy – transforming conflicts into learning opportunities. This allows children to solve their own problems with the guidance and modeling of our experienced teachers. By learning self-regulation, young children can more readily embrace social and emotional learning and discipline.
