Our program allows the growing child to develop an understanding of and appreciation for their ever-expanding world through nature and history-based play and hands-on experiences in a 52-acre setting. Lessons are delivered in unique settings from the historic farmstead to hardwood hammocks to dry sinkholes, and cypress swamps, as well as in the classroom.
