Westbrook Nature School was created and designed to meet the young child’s need for meaningful encounters with the natural world. Our shady woods, sand area, and tree deck, natural shelters, sunny organic garden, and our beautiful forest trails will nurture your child’s development through meaningful work and play. Our eco-friendly schoolhouse, a lovely blend of wood and stone, provides a restful, homelike atmosphere for activities more suited to the indoors. Our teachers are educated in both mainstream and alternative streams of education to provide the most comprehensive and informed approach to your child’s learning. The mission of Westbrook Nature School is to return vitality and joy to the young child’s educational experience by providing a dynamic natural environment that fulfills a child’s fundamental need for exploration and discovery. Through their deepening relationship with nature, we guide the child toward resilience, balance, and social growth. We also seek to support the health and well being of our families, to play a supportive role in the local community, and to be a vital component in the growing global effort to ensure every child’s right to experience the natural world as part of their education now and in the future. We are also committed to supporting the growing global effort to sustain, heal, and become stewards of the earth.
