The Nature Preschool at Ijams blends traditional education standards with the opportunity to learn about and explore the natural world. Children spend the majority of their time outdoors, where they learn through play, discovery and inquiry.

The Nature Preschool at Ijams Nature Center is housed in the Miller Education Building. To reach this location, follow the following directions:

  1. Turn into the main entrance for Ijams Nature Center (2915 Island Home Avenue).
