It’s a Big World in our Little Backyard

Offering a balance of physical activities and quiet exploration, the outdoor classroom provides opportunities for children to be involved in a wide range of new and different hands-on experiences that foster both group and independent learning.

In the summer of 2017, Northport Nursery School began construction on what has quickly become a focal point of the school. The first of its kind in the community, our outdoor classroom was built with a simple premise in mind: that children benefit from spending more time outdoors, especially in natural places. We believe that increasing the time that our students spend outdoors is a perfect way to nurture the sense of wonder that is so critical to their well-being and personal growth.

Like our indoor classrooms, the outdoor space includes designated areas for meetings, art, music, movement, building, free exploration and water play. Schedule a visit for a tour today!

A Little Help From Our Friends

The outdoor classroom would not have been possible without the support and donations of our families, and our larger community. From the many hours of labor put in by our parent volunteers to the donations of our current and alumni families, and the generosity of local businesses… we cannot thank you all enough for getting this unique project off the ground, and continuing to help us grow our space into the most special outdoor classroom around!

Want to help furnish the outdoor classroom with all-weather art easels and musical instruments? Monetary donations can easily be made via the PayPal link below; please note your connection to your school so we can recognize your contribution. Help us spread the word and share this link with family and friends!
