What is Nature Based Preschool?

The ODC Network’s family of nature-based preschools provide students with an excitement for learning with play and nature-based learning. Children spend time outdoors each day, learning through active play and exploration. Researchers have identified health benefits and academic benefits resulting from nature-based learning. 

Little Hawks, Seedlings, and Dragonglies Discovery Preschools are a division of the ODC Network, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2000 with the purpose of advancing outdoor education and conservation in West Michigan.
