Take a Tour Inside (and Outside) a Nature Preschool

Natural Start

Nature's Way Preschool

Have you ever wondered what it’s like inside (and outside) a nature preschool? Ben Eldridge, Director of Education at the Cibolo Nature Center in Boerne, Texas, did. He’s working on developing a nature preschool at his center and attended the Nature-Based Preschool Conference at this year’s Association of Nature Center Administrators (ANCA) Summit to bring home ideas for his own program.
He asked for a tour from the gracious staff at the Kalamazoo Nature Center’s Nature’s Way Preschool—hosts of the conference—and has put the tour up on YouTube for all to see. Check it out, and let us know if you have any videos you’d like to share of your own program!
