Kids playing at the sandbox

Drop in on Nature is an emergent program that is child led, inquiry based, outdoor, and all-weather. Our 7 acre location is privately fenced-in with hiking trails, thousands of plant and tree species, a meandering stream, bridges, sandbox, sanctuary, large weaving loom, art/wood studio, and more for children to explore at their own pace.

Complete nature immersion programs are proven to have many health and well-being benefits worldwide. This outdoor classroom space is the first of its kind in Southern Chester County and we are extremely proud to be able to offer an alternative program to the traditional 4 wall classroom.

We host children ages:

  • 0-3 who come with an adult, no number limit
  • 4-6 who can be dropped off, up to six per class
