Why Nature School
Humans have been using nature and the environment around them to learn and problem solve for thousands of years. Nature is the perfect classroom thousands of "loose parts" can be found in the outdoors. Loose parts play is using everyday items in versatile ways. Being outside and engaged in unstructured outdoor play stimulates imagination, and is great practice in self-regulation and teamwork. Children gain a great sense of pride and self-esteem when they create and execute ideas on their own.
Benefits of Inclusive Classrooms
Inclusion in classrooms is beneficial to all students. The instruction is tailored to each individual meeting the needs of all. This creates high expectations as the same material is taught to all children however, it is differentiated to their learning style and developmental level. Differences and disabilities are celebrated which cultivates community and empathy.
