Toddlers & Preschoolers Building & Honoring Respectful Relationships with Earth, Others & Themselves

Your child will explore the wonders of their community's amazing backyard, the natural world of the Presidio: lots of tactile, thought and imagination-provoking experiences with dirt, leaves, bugs, birds, butterflies, and more! All this while being among the first in their playgroup and/or preschool to learn and practice Nature Nurture's philosophy and methodology of honoring all living things, including others and themselves.
