Outdoor Classroom

Dr. Montessori believed that the outdoor environment is a natural extension of the classroom.  On our campus students have the daily opportunity to experience the outdoors with structure and purpose.  Located across the street from the Gardenia entrance is Rosies Park.  It is here that  students have access to play structures, a basketball court, running track and a wooded area with a winding nature trail.  The woods are abundant with local flora and fauna which allow students to build  a meaningful connection with the natural world.

Besides developing their gross motor skills  through  group activities and individual play,  students  also gain a respect for the outdoor classroom as they are made aware of larger environmental concerns and stewardship practices.
