Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Nature’s Childcare, we place the highest importance on serving the
needs of your child. We emphasize that Nature’s Childcare is a loving,
caring place away from home where your child will feel needed, accepted,
and comfortable. Nature’s Childcare staff utilizes a value-based curriculum
along with Montessori learning programs. We employ a highly dedicated
and loving group of teachers to create an educational program of the
highest quality. We also value input from committed and involved parents.
Our students learn values and skills that will help them to become a part
of a caring and sharing community."
