Nature Walk Montessori School is an environmentally friendly community that strives to nurture young children’s innate love of learning while fostering respect for all living systems.

We are proud to offer exceptional Infant-Toddler, Early Childhood and Elementary Education Programs with a strong environmental component. Our 10 acres of land and a brand new building specially designed to meet the needs of our young students allow us to provide a natural, safe, and stimulating learning environment. As an eco-school, Nature Walk promotes the children’s close interaction with their natural surroundings so they may develop a strong social and environmental consciousness. In our school children enjoy nature walks in our own trails to observe and appreciate natural life, play in our forest playscape, practice responsible disposal of waste by recycling and composting, collect water in rain barrels to use in our flower and vegetable gardens, participate in meaningful community projects such as the creation of our rain garden, pick apples from our own orchard, and many more. By learning to connect with nature, our students learn to respect, protect, understand, and enjoy the natural world.

We serve children aged birth to 14. We are Full Members of AMS.

Our staff understand and promote ecological responsibility, healthy eating and respect for all members of our school community. We expect our faculty to be involved and active in the school community. Confident, professional demeanor and a sense of humor are important characteristics.
