Sweet Pea Preschool is a Nature Based Outdoor Program for children ages 3 to 5. Children should be prepared to spend the majority of their time outdoors and parents can expect their child to come home with some of the outdoors still attached. (e.g., mud, grass stains) 🙂 A major portion of the curriculum is based on interacting with the natural world, learning about local flora and fauna, performing studies on the weather, and generally just having fun exploring whatever piques the children’s curiosity. Along with an immersion in the outdoors, we aim to facilitate an easy transition to the child’s next stage of education. By incorporating methods for developing the fundamentals of reading and writing the child will be well equipped to excel through their scholastic years. Daily activities also incorporate music, art, math, and science.
At Sweet Pea Preschool we believe in scaffold learning where we continue to build off of what the child has learned and keep adding more to that foundation. We also are firm believers in child directed learning, where learning is directed to the child’s interests and abilities. Our goal is to help each child become a confident individual who is community minded and has a passion for learning. We also want to bring back the basics and help each child become more in touch with nature and the environment that surrounds them. Each day of purposeful learning helps each child achieve their next developmental milestone.
