Saplings Outdoor Program

Saplings believes that nature is a child's best education. We believe that fostering a child's sense of wonder for the great outdoors by facilitating inspirational, stimulating, and hands-on experiences promotes lifelong learning and interest in the outdoors. The teacher is a resourceful guide in helping children become aware of the important role nature plays in our lives. Being outdoors develops an appreciation for the beauty of the natural world and our responsibilities related to its preservation. We adapt to the natural pace of the children, allowing them to explore their interests to the fullest.

Each day at Saplings is a little bit different. We allow the children’s imagination to guide our exploration and discoveries. Some of the nature based activities include fort and shelter making competitions, fairyhouse building, nature art, and even creating your own bow and arrow!

We value the importance of a flexible program which provide children with plenty of free-time to explore their own interests and enjoy the wonders around them.
