Description

In a digitally charged age, it is important for children to be exposed early on to the wonders of the natural world around them. This fundamental education can help children to become more self-aware and understanding of the tangible ways in which the world exists. Developing pathways for learning and inspiring curiosity prepares children for social and academic success as they mature.

Evidence of Program's Success

"While our boys attended Worldmind Nature Immersion School (WNIS), they have shown significant improvement with their emotional intelligence, mental and physical health, and social competence- among other developmental skills emerged through WNIS ECE program. We believe these elements are breakthrough impacts- foundational prerequisites for success in school, the workplace, and developing future environmental stewards in our nature-deficient society. WNIS ECE program shifts core concepts in early childhood development that forces us as parents into rethinking current health and education policies."
