Outdoor Program

Bringing the outdoors to their classroom
  • Class Overview

    Bringing the outdoors to their every day lives
  • Outdoor Program

    Our main outdoor program runs through a typical school year and follows the Tippecanoe School Corporation calendar. Children learn about topics such as the holidays, seasons, local animals, and colors. Typical daily activities include exploring our various outdoor learning stations, journaling, coloring, singing, crafts and playing indoors/outdoors.

    Our goal is to encourage children to enjoy the outdoors throughout the year. We ask that your child comes dressed accordingly to the season. We will also help to ensure that all children will be warm and comfortable during the winter.
