Before/After School STE(A)M
We so enjoyed creating, exploring, and investigating with your children this past school year! Our NatureLab offers a unique opportunity for children of all ages to engage with the changing world around us through STE(A)M-based projects and exploration.
WE ARE ON WAITLIST AND PAUSING SIGN-UPS - except for mornings Monday-Thursday. If you are interested in enrolling for the coming 2023-2024 school year, we are adding interested families to a waitlist. If you are interested in before school programming, we have open spots. Please sign up for the anticipated number of days per week on the pull-down menu. the NatureLab offers a morning track, an afternoon track, and a combined morning and afternoon track. We will be in touch with enrolled families in early summer to confirm plans and days per week per month.
If you and your child are interested in exploring the NatureLab programs during the 2023-2024 school year, but would like more information, please fill out this survey.
Beyond the projects, each child is encouraged to explore the wider world; be it building forts, studying flora & fauna, collecting rocks, sampling wild plants, playing outside, interacting with friends, or getting their hands dirty making and creating.
We start each month with an overarching theme and plan each day of the week with a standalone project. So whether your child participates one day a week or five, before or after or on a weekend, each day is different.
A core element of our afterschool program since 2013, we meet our TPES/PBES Kindergarten through 5th grade students at their schools at dismissal. We then enjoy a snack, play at the park, head toward a hands-on project, or explore our city.
As always, the NatureLab includes both open and structured programs to nimbly and creatively respond to the individual needs and interests of the children in our program.

We are monitoring the ongoing COVID conditions in our community to determine the safest ways to run both indoor and outdoor classes. As of right now, we are wearing masks when we are inside but masks are optional outside.
