Reviews from parents about their experience in our outdoor early childhood education camps and classes.

"

My sons and I have completed an entire year with Angie as our beloved teacher. She makes learning fun and engaging. Both of my children immediately felt comfortable with Angie because of her warm heart, gentle approach to managing mixed aged learning groups, and exciting energy.  My children both learned general preschool classroom skills, but in the best classroom of all; the great outdoors!  An emphasis on both science knowledge and social/ emotional development were the most important aspects to our family. I truly learned how to be a better, more present parent and formed friendships which will last a lifetime. We are already looking forward to next year and cannot recommend Nature Buddies enough.

I'm so grateful to have found Nature Buddies classes in our area.  These classes help children learn through play and nature exploration.  Knowing how we fit into the natural world, and taking time to observe the world around us is so important to a child's development.  Miss Angie is a wonderful guide for these children, allowing them the freedom to be themselves, yet gently guiding them to understand the 'whys' and 'hows' and consequences of the world around us.  She understands that each child is unique, and knows that some days it's enough for them to be present without needing to be in the middle of everything.  I love how Angie asks the children many questions to develop their thinking skills and doesn't jump in to solve problems for them.  Angie always has great information and challenges for parents, as well, so we can continue to build upon the lessons taught each week after we leave class.  This is one class my son is excited to attend!

Angie’s classes are a highlight of our week!  It’s so wonderful to have time dedicated to messy play, enjoying nature, and going on mini adventures that are creative and engaging.

What a wonderful experience these classes were not only for my granddaughter but for me, the Grandmother as well. I only wished I had been experiencing such as this when my daughter was young.  You are fantastic! You are very ingenious about what you have to present to the children and us adults every week. We both learned a lot which we would have never learned in a classroom or by reading books.  The park was a perfect place with nature all around!
