"The most engaging preschool experiences rarely come home in a backpack."

Stephen Moss

8. “Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world, but themselves.” 

Amigos del Bosque Spanish Nature Preschool teachers, director and volunteer’s believe that children learn best while they are engaged in play, and are amazed by the nature they explore in their surroundings. We believe Nature is a rich classroom where children can observe and notice natural processes, where they can touch and feel without the fear of getting dirty. We prioritize nature-based play, child-led, and emergent curriculum.

Children will spend most of their time outside, exploring, observing, playing and connecting with nature. Teachers are facilitators and avid observers of children's interest and discoveries. Learning experiences and opportunities happen everyday and can be child led and/or teacher led. The curriculum emerges from our daily experiences and observations in nature as well as the natural flow of the children's play with each other.
