    Nature Preschool Open House

     

    Finding early education can be stressful for any parent; the Schuykill Center for Environmental Education thinks that they may have the solution, with their all-new nature immersion classroom (where children spend their entire class session outdoors) as a starting point. Spend the day exploring the school, meeting the teachers, and learning about their Nature Preschool curriculum, which goes as high as kindergarten.
