Now entering its sixth year, The Hundred Acre School engages preschoolers and Kindergarten students (starting in Fall 2019!) in active learning and preparation for better success in school through classroom learning, exploration of Heritage’s 100 acres of nature trails and woodlands, and interactive activities with Heritage’s collections, facilities, and gardens. The school’s mission is to teach the whole child, using children’s natural curiosity and ease at learning through play, while emphasizing STEM as a springboard to multidisciplinary learning.
