It’s official! Meridian Hills Cooperative Nursery School & Kindergarten has earned national recognition as a Certified Nature Explore Classroom!
Our unique outdoor classroom offers interactive elements, such as musical instruments made of natural materials, a sensory garden, pathway areas, and natural materials for building and creating art. Research consistently shows that children who learn and grow in Nature Explore Classrooms exhibit enhanced concentration, develop creativity and problem solving techniques, manage stress in healthy ways and develop skills across the spectrum of academic and creative learning.
“MHCNS&K’s commitment to providing research-based and nature-rich learning offers a wonderful example to programs and educators throughout the country,” said Heather Fox, director of communications and outreach for the Nature Explore program. “These spaces inspire hands-on activity, creativity, play and plenty of time exploring the natural world.”
