About BOPN Preschool
Children are natural scientists. They relish seasonal changes, delight in changing fall leaves, and springtime blooms. It is second nature for them to observe and question, wondering where the fish they saw in the fall are now that the pond is covered in ice. Boston Outdoor Preschool Network honors this disposition and uses it as a springboard for learning.
Our emergent curriculum follows the seasons and the children's interests to build a vocabulary overflowing with the flora and fauna of nature's school house!
"BOPN provides outdoor educational programming in a variety of areas and supports children and families from different backgrounds. These experiences are integral in shaping the outcomes for our children and setting a precedent of taking notice and care of our natural world."
