Why nature-based
early learning?

🌵 90% of a young child's brain is formed by the time they are 5-years-old. 

🌵 What a young child senses and experiences in the very early years has profound impact on the their development.

🌵 A robust body of research now demonstrates that time in nature supports all facets of learning and health, and helps young children reach important cognitive, social-emotional, and physical developmental benchmarks.
