Learning in Nature
A holistic approach to school readiness
Our preschool uses nature to teach children valuable skills needed to succeed in school and life. In this fast-paced, technology-driven society, children need time outside in a natural environment. Wee Humans: Nature Preschool provides that opportunity.
WEE HUMANS IS NOW WONDERBLOOM! Head on over to the new website to read about our exciting programs.
Wee Humans is a preschool unlike any other in Salt Lake City in that it follows the structure of European "Forest Schools" where the children spend most of the school time in the outdoors -- learning through interaction with nature. These types of schools have many benefits including reducing obesity, protecting psychological well-being, increasing positive social skills, and increasing positive attitudes toward nature and the environment.
Wee Humans just transitioned to a non-profit named Wonderbloom and we have a great new facility in downtown Salt Lake CIty! We have summer and academic programs available so head over to the new website.
We engage your child's natural curiosity to take advantage of learning opportunities. We base our curriculum on developmentally appropriate practices (DAP). Each day we incorporate kindergarten readiness skills.
Yoga and Nutrition
Children love to practice what movements their bodies can do. Yoga is a great way to encourage body awareness. Nutrition is another way to honor our bodies. Each class includes a healthy, organic lunch with a variety of foods. Children also participate in tending our vegetable garden.
Respecting each other and the natural world is built into everything we do at Wee Humans. In addition to building healthy peer relationships, children will become friends with our on-site chickens, bugs, and garden.
