About Us

Joy on a swingNatural Learning Alternative started as a small playgroup full of like-minded parents seeking a better option for their preschool age children.  My how quickly we have grown!  We now rent a beautiful space and meet two days a week.

My vision is to create a loving, nurturing environment where children can explore and discover freely!  My hope is to help create a life long love for learning for children.   I believe children learn best by exploring the natural world allowing them to discover their own unique passions and curiosities. The emphasis is on the development of the whole child…social, emotional and intellectual. The curriculum is the child!

I provide developmentally appropriate experiences that emphasize open-ended, active play (which is how children learn best).  I offer art, science, sensory, imaginary play and nature activities for the children to explore each day.

Philosophy Inspirations:

I am influenced by the work of Susan Caruso at Sunflower Creative Arts in Boca Raton, Florida as well as Bev Bos at Roseville Community Preschool in Roseville, California.
