What makes Puddle Jumpers Nature Preschool so different?
Why do we believe in teaching preschool backwards?
Simply put, there is a status quo in early childhood education.
Unchanged. Unchallenged. Unhealthy. Uninspired. Visit the places that offer a traditional preschool education. There's one on every corner.
They're all working from the same basic blueprint. Every "classroom" is basically the same with very little differentiation.
Traditional preschools are still teaching the same old antiquated model of come in, sit down, be quiet, be still, fight every instinct you have to be active and social, get used to doing what we command and begin learning to stay inside your little cubicle for your own good.
Has this ever been good for children?
Does it inspire creative learning or new discoveries?
Does it teach children to love learning?
Or does it just break a child's spirit?
We believe in teaching preschool backwards because our mission was to create a school that teaches the way children actually learn.
We provide Active Learning in a continuously changing Awe Inspiring Living Classroom!
ACTIVE LEARNING OUTDOORS IN NATURE?
Yes it's different.
Yes it challenges the status quo.
Have children changed or has childhood just changed for this generation of children?
We are passionate about getting children outdoors actively learning in the natural environment. Letting them move, run, jump, climb and play! Children's bodies still need this to grow strong and healthy. Children's minds still need this to be inspired to learn about the world around them. CHILDHOOD is disappearing but a child's need for it remains. Another health benefit of nature preschool is the Fresh air and sunshine! It helps to be outside in the fresh air instead of cooped up inside 4 walls breathing in recycled air full of germs and viruses. Nature preschoolers have lower illness rates and build a stronger immune system. Scientists have proven the microbial benefits of exposure to the natural world.
