Natureplay Preschool
Natureplay preschool features discovery based learning with nature at the foundation of the curriculum. Our goal is to help young children develop a strong connection with the natural world at an early age. The nearby Mill Creek Streamway Park provides the children with extended periods of outdoor exploration within the linear park. While indoors, child initiated experiential learning increases awareness and appreciation of the natural world. This full immersion nature preschool is unique to the greater Kansas City area. Johnson County Park & Recreation District is eager to advance early childhood environmental literacy through Natureplay. The preschool is open year-round and licensed for 24 children ages 3-5 years. For details visit our Children's Services Early Childhood Development page.
