We've Got Skills
We are inquiry-based, and play-driven...letting the learners lead the way. And Skills is in our name! Social-emotional skills, fire-building skills, motor skills, plant-identification skills. You name it, we weave it all together.
Devoted to children’s holistic development in relationship with the natural world.
We nurture skills that foster children’s affection towards themselves and their ecological community, important parts to becoming healthy and integrated members of it. LNCS takes place entirely outside at Distant Hill Gardens Nature Trail. Children play in their natural world, beginning to to value it deeply when they come into their own understanding of it. Because of this, LNCS programming is learner-led and focuses on free play and exploration as an important part of our daily routine and environmental instruction. To that end, we provide opportunities for children to learn skills for appropriate risk-taking, to build confidence and resiliency, amongst other quality traits that fortify development of self and connection to nature.. check them out below.
