MIAMI NATURE PLAYschool Programs
are designed to positively connect young children and their families with nature, creating opportunities to stimulate their innate curiosity about the Natural World.
Founded in November 2011, The Childhood Nature Project a 501 C3 Non Profit former known as Buzzy Kids was funded and served as a platform to explore and learn about outdoor classrooms and alternative education; 5 years later, in 2016, Miami Nature PLAYschool (MNP) was created as a non traditional Mommy and Me, Preschool or Kindergarten, but an alternative educational space created by professional moms advocating to preserve the pure essence of childhood during their first six years of life through the
PARENT & CHILD INSTITUTE and the Forest Kindergarten program called ADVENTURES IN THE FOREST.
One of the goals of MNP is to gather families to build child-oriented, playful communities whose main goal is to support the social, emotional and physical development of their children in a healthy, nurturing environment utilizing the tools of nature.
Being the first program created under the Nature-Based model in South Florida, now 12 years later, other programs like ours have been born not only in Miami but in Broward too, becoming an alternative to regular Mommy and Me programs and Preschools in the area.
Our sister organization Miami Nature School, as a private day school, gather the first community of children between 6 and 12 years old in a self directed learning community offered entirely outdoors.
Our Mentors aim to guide children at Adventures in the Forest into experiences that nurture their connection to nature, developing awareness and care for our planet in an organic way. Our Facilitators help parents at the Parent & Child Institute, to discover the importance of becoming a good role models to foster in their children a wide range of personal and interpersonal skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
