Teaching Young Children in Nature

Children naturally wonder about the world around them. Elachee Nature Academy uses a child-directed, discovery-based curriculum to instruct young students in developmentally appropriate and meaningful ways.

A nature-based educational experience combines the very best in learning opportunities. It is hand-on, facilitates a sense of curiosity, encourages problem-solving and builds social skills including teamwork. And it instills a lifelong understanding, appreciation and value of our natural world.
