Preschool educators have long known that animals, plants, water, and other aspects of the natural world delight children and draw them in as learners. As a result, most preschools will at certain points use nature or natural elements in their teaching to achieve great educational results. Nature preschools, however, are a special breed of preschool. Nature preschools have all the same child development goals that more traditional schools have, but they also are committed to accomplishing those goals through experiences in and with nature, and have an added goal of helping children begin to develop care and concern for the natural world.
