What better classroom than hundreds of acres of wild Wisconsin?
Our nature based 4K partnership with the West Bend School District and Kettle Moraine YMCA – West Bend continues to amaze. Neither snow nor rain nor heat keeps them from exploring and learning outside every day!
The program features hands-on, child-centered opportunities for learning through exploration and discovery in rich outdoor settings. Through a wide variety of seasonally appropriate experiences, children develop a strong connection with the natural world and build fundamental skills needed to prepare them for kindergarten.
