Ijams Nature Center will host open houses for families interested in learning more about the new Nature Preschool at Ijams Wednesday, April 25, at 6 p.m. and Monday, April 30, at 6 p.m. at the Ijams Miller Education Building, 2915 Island Home Ave.

Registration is open for the Nature Preschool, which will focus on child-led, age-appropriate, experiential learning for children ages 3-5. The fall semester starts August 20 and features four sessions:
– Monday/Wednesday 9 a.m.-noon
– Monday/Wednesday 1-4 p.m.
– Tuesday/Thursday 9 a.m.-noon
– Tuesday/Thursday 1-4 p.m.

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

The Nature Preschool’s curricula will encourage curiosity, cognitive growth and motor skills through unstructured, child-led outdoor adventures. Children will build problem-solving, math and engineering skills through hands-on experiences, and cultivate social skills through group play and opportunities for cooperative learning.
