At Nature Days, we Let Nature be our Guide

We let kids be kids as they explore, create, and discover. We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to connect with the natural world in their own way.

Outdoor play helps children grow into happy and healthy adults. Being outside in the fresh air and sunshine increases physical, mental and emotional well-being, strengthens the immune system and has many long-lasting health benefits. It’s been proven that children that play outdoors are more curious, focused, empathetic, and confident.

Through structured and unstructured learning and play time, we help children develop the creativity and critical thinking needed to build long-lasting connections with nature. Our educators help children build strong cognitive, social, and emotional development, encouraging cooperative play, positive social behavior and communication skills.

Our programs are made up of small groups of children with a low student to teacher ratio, allowing each child to get the attention they need. Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve has plenty of space to explore with quiet forests, trickling streams, colorful meadows, big skies, fresh air, and even some magical places where fairies are thought to live!
