About BOPN Pre-K & Kindergarten

Kindergarten students desire to better know and understand the world around them.  "Who," "what," "where," "when," "why" and "how" are ever on their lips.  At BOPN, we follow these questions and the answers lead to place-based literacy activities, such as exploring maps, signs, and field guides, as well as math activities, such as counting and sorting pinecones, measuring sticks, and observing the stupendous shapes of the natural world. 

 

We believe that all academic skills & concepts needed for elementary school can be taught outdoors and through exploring nature.  Grounded in the child's interests and taught through play, our kindergartners retain their love of learning and enter their elementary years with the dispositions needed for success!

 

"BOPN offers kids more than just an education it offers them an experience. The teachers foster confidence, independence, and caring, they teach the skills that will be a solid foundation for our kids to build on and they do it in a natural setting that creates a love of nature and the environment."
