A holistic approach to early childhood education
Wonderbloom: Nature Playschoo is a non-profit, state-licensed, nature-based early childhood education program. Wonderbloom was the first nature-based preschool to be established in Salt Lake City. We were inspired by the philosophy of European "Forest Schools," where children spend most of the school time in the outdoors -- learning through interaction with nature. We are an urban, nature program in the middle of downtown Salt Lake to teach all children that nature is everywhere!
Racial, Economic, and Ability Equity is Important to Us!
Read about how we as a program are facing our biases and actively working to overcome them in order to have equitable access for all children.
Learning has lasting effects when children play amongst things of beauty and joy.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"[This] nature-based preschool is wonderful! The kids always come home with a beautiful craft that was related to the theme of the day, are introduced to new, healthy foods, and they are in a good mood after having played outside all morning long. Sarah is amazing at sparking the kids' interest in anything nature related and quenching their thirst for knowledge. Her calm yet energetic nature resonates very well with the children! A truly positive experience!"
