Based in Nature
Nationally Accredited by NAEYC for over 20 years, Peoples Church Preschool embraces a nature-based philosophy and strives to connect children with the natural world whenever possible. This influences our curriculum and daily schedules, including the materials and activities available in both the indoor and outdoor classrooms. In 2016, Peoples Church Preschool's Outdoor Classroom received national recognition as a Certified Nature Explore Classroom.
As an urban Nature Preschool, our program utilizes the 3-acre Valley Court Park adjacent to the preschool and partners with multiple nature centers located in our community.
- Peoples Church Preschool participates in the TerraCycle program, which supports many earth friendly goals - including recycling, sustainability, and upcycling.
- Our Preschool earns money by collecting a variety of materials that we ship to TerraCycle. For example, for each qualifying wrapper that we collect and send in, the Preschool earns1 cent.
- Our Recycling and Upcycling station is located in the hallway between the sanctuary and the Preschool Two classroom. Information about what is currently being collected is posted there.
- The Preschool also donates credits twice a year to have trees planted in an American forest through the Arbor Day Foundation.
- You can also check our FunRaising page for a list of upcycling items.
