Nature Preschools and Kindergartens in Philadelphia

Over the last few years, nature preschools and outdoor education have received some serious attention. The concept allows kids to learn all or most of their lessons in the great outdoors-- no matter the weather. Lessons often incorporate the outdoors and feature plenty of adventurous activities such as hiking, canoeing, climbing, and ropes courses. What's awesome about this trend is that kids get to spend tons of time outside instead of sitting in a classroom. In addition, it also teaches kids practical outdoor survival skills. Some of these forest schools even go all the way through 12th grade. While it's still a relatively new phenomenon (and maybe not for the faint of heart), the Philadelphia area has multiple options. 

Preschool Picks in Fairfield County, Connecticut

Preschool. How could something so full of fun and games be so, so, so agonizingly difficult to select?!  Surely, there was a time when it was either 'the one around the corner,' or that 'Montessori one across town'. No more. The Montessori approach has been joined by Bank Street, Project Approach, and Reggio Emilia (and no doubt, others I've never heard of). There's also a wide range in cost. And scheduling. And wait for it…admissions requirements. There are easily hundreds, if not thousands of options for preschool in Fairfield County. Mommy Poppins and her friends have, at least, HEARD good things about the following preschools, or have children enrolled in them. Surely, we've missed some good ones, so please jump into the conversation and let us know where they are (especially you city dwellers out there - Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport)!

Science, Language & Arts International School Brings New Language Immersion Programs to Brooklyn

Bienvenue to Brooklyn! Or should we say 欢迎?

Dual-language schools are all the rage as parents and educators realize the growing importance of preparing kids for our quickly globalizing world. Here in Brooklyn, Science, Language & Arts International School (SLA) continues to grow with the increasing demand for its innovative and effective immersion program. Founded by linguist and bilingual education specialist Jennifer Wilkin back in 2011, the independent school has expanded to offer a rigorous, project-based education in a bilingual French or Mandarin setting for kids ages two to fourteen. And starting this academic year, SLA is launching a brand new pre-K Mandarin immersion track to run alongside the existing French immersion track, as well as middle school tracks for 6th to 8th graders in both Mandarin and French.

Not only does SLA offer a rich science, math, and arts curriculum in a bilingual environment, but it does it at a significantly lower tuition than many other local private schools.
