Children learn to be self-motivated, cooperative, respectful, grateful, and aware of their impact on the earth during their experiences with us. Outdoor adventures in all weather conditions facilitate healthy risk-taking. Our days include immersion in varied natural areas, helping to build a child's sense of place in the world.
By learning to take acceptable risks, preschoolers' pride, self-worth, and perseverance also grows.
My child loves LNOP! He would live outdoors if we would let him. He can not wait to see his ‘school family’ every morning and never wants to leave in the afternoons.?I love that he is learning to be independent and improve his communication skills. It is also pretty amazing to watch his creativity and curiosity flourish in a natural setting.” — Preschool Parent
