How much time is spent outside?
Nature is one of the main classrooms at MRS. Our community will be outside for at least two hours a day and depending on emerging curriculums or other scheduled adventures, this time might be longer. If our students are excited about climbing a tree, building a fort in the snow, or following a hopping frog, we want to make sure they have the space and time to see these journeys through.

What is holistic nature-based education?
Holistic nature-based education allows children to unfold to their fullest potential-- emotionally, socially, intellectually, physically, creatively, artistically, and spiritually (non-sectarian). The children learn about themselves as individuals and as part of a community while speaking a language of kindness, respect and compassion for all. Nature is one of the main classrooms in which children learn through nature-based activities and open explorations. Drawing on their innate knowing, children cultivate empathy and understanding by exploring the connection between all living things.
