The Nature School of Philadelphia

“The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world, and who balance the virtual with the real.”

– Richard Louv, The Nature Principle



Love Your Place. Find Your Way.

The Nature School of Philadelphia will provide an environment that encourages a child’s innate curiosity to grow and flourish. Exploration of the natural world is core to the Nature School’s philosophy of learning.

Expecting to open our doors to you Fall 2020.
