Beginning in Fall 2020, Cincinnati Nature Center will offer a new Kindergarten–2nd grade (K-2) school! Please join us for a parents’ information session in the Pine Room of Rowe Visitor Center to learn about this wonderful new opportunity for children! You’ll meet our teaching staff and learn more about this exciting new school that will be opening this fall.
An alternative to the traditional program, our K–2 program will emphasize STEAM education through a nature-based and Montessori style approach. Children who attend the K–2 program will not only meet Ohio Learning standards but will engage in experiential learning and creative discovery. They will also perform Citizen Science Projects by studying wildlife while collecting data.
For more information or to RSVP, please contact Tisha Luthy, Early Childhood Program Director, email@example.com.
