At the forefront of nature-based early childhood education since 1967.

Our Philosophy of Education

At Earthplace Preschool, we believe that children learn best in an educational program that is focused on the whole child. We strive to meet the social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical needs of our students using curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and engaging.

We provide hands-on learning experiences in nature and in the classroom setting that allow children to make connections to the world around them. And, we believe that families and staff are partners in fostering a lifelong love of learning.

Our History

Since 1967, Earthplace Preschool has been at the forefront of the nature-based preschool movement. Nature-infused learning has experienced tremendous growth in recent years due to research that documents the benefits of unstructured play in nature and environmental education.
