Find Us Outside Nature Immersion Program is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in 2016. The mission of Find Us Outside (FUO) is to instill a love of learning through our holistic nature immersion program. The program encourages each child to develop socially, emotionally, and physically through interest-led play and exploration. The natural landscapes, fresh air, loose parts in the forest, and the changing seasons will comprise our unique classroom.
The program runs from 9am - 11:45am and takes place entirely outside in all safe weather. It is designed for ages 3 - 7 and can be either a full or part time program. It also works well as a supplement to any homeschool program.
Children will acquire the skills necessary to succeed in formal education and beyond. Children will be free to explore the nature preserve or state park to acquire skills with which they can build upon each time they return to our forest classroom. To ensure a safe and fulfilling experience, each child will be closely observed using a 4:1, student: educator ratio. Through hands-on exploration and repeated exposure to the diverse ecosystem concepts of Science, Technology (critical thinking as precursor to achieving technology), Environmental Education, Art, Mathematics (STEAM) as well as creativity, imaginative play, collaboration and numerous psychological and physical benefits of spending time in nature will blossom within each child over time.
