The Amherst Preschool Kindergarten program is a play-based blend of learning standards for Kindergarten students include math, science/engineering, social studies and balanced literacy. Open-ended art experiences, exploratory opportunities, collaborative work and what we value most at Let’s Grow Outside NH, the social and emotional work of young children. Students lead their learning journey while teachers design an environment to promote growth for each learner. This program is wrapped warmly in extensive outdoor experiences practicing whole body development, the appreciation of nature and community through place based education. The yurt classroom is designed for small group work, quiet spaces for independent time and with the freedom of play as an important part of the explorative learning process. The children experience the outdoors in all weather, consistent with the Let’s Grow Outside NH philosophy.
