Tucked away on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River, our beautiful 26-acre campus is surrounded by woods and fields. It’s an inspiring place to discover nature’s wonders.
Children are inherently curious about the natural world and are motivated by their own curiosity. Chance’s nature study in an outdoor classroom setting strengthens this connection between children and their environment. By exploring their world, children are encouraged to generate new ideas about nature and a desire to learn more. Students become responsible members of the natural world.
Similar to classroom theme studies, Outdoor Classroom studies focus on topics of student interest, such as native plant life and native animals. Students might plant a native garden or use their listening and thinking skills as they perform scientific experiments. Maybe they will make bird boxes to protect native birds. Certainly, students will touch, smell and learn about the natural world in brand new ways.
Our campus is also irresistibly fun as children build friendships and social skills. Unique spaces like the Organic Learning Greenhouse, the chicken coop and gardens excite young imaginations. Our two playgrounds are nestled among the trees and rock outcroppings.
