Teaching Responsible Earth Education While providing academic challenges, we instill a caring attitude and provide fundamental knowledge of how the systems on the Earth work. Our programs also immerse children in a safe and natural environment where they are nurtured and can develop a deep appreciation for the precious plants and animals that live on the Earth through thought provoking experiential activities.
