Nestled among nearly 100 acres of open space, the preschool classroom provides a unique opportunity for children to explore the natural world while becoming prepared for school.
“Berks Nature knows how important outdoor play is for a child’s development,” shares preschool Director Anne Muvdi. “Studies show participation in ‘wild’ nature before age 11 to be a particularly potent pathway toward shaping both environmental attitudes and behaviors in adulthood.”
