"The child has a different relation to his environment from ours... the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear." Maria Montessori

With the assistance of the staff from the Calusa Nature Center, Miss Karen and Miss Erica are offering a specialized nature curriculum from 12:30 to 3:00. Our goal is to teach students to appreciate and care for their local environment.
