of the wild
Of the Wild is a Nature Preschool for children aged 3-5. We are a Reggio Emilia inspired inquiry-based preschool aimed at exposing children to experiences in nature to help them grow, develop and learn through an inquiry-based approach. Our curriculum organically stems from children’s unique questions and interests. Educators act as observers and researchers alongside children to purposefully plan for future learning opportunities based on students’ questions, interests and needs. Inquiry promotes differentiation in learning and allows children to demonstrate their thinking at a rate that is developmentally appropriate.
Our Nature Preschool program offers a balance of explorations in our indoor and outdoor environments. We use nature as a venue for play and exploration in all seasons, strengthening the connection between children and their natural world. Children and educators have many opportunities for planned and unplanned natural learning, such as when an eagle soars overhead or a slug crosses their path. This then leads to further discussion and learning in our indoor classroom. Our outdoor environment is more than just a place to play. The environment is essentially the third educator in the program that helps spark children’s natural curiosity.
