Our Favorite Nature-Based Preschool


Finding the right preschool is often a big milestone in parenting. We all ask for good recommendations, visit potential schools, and research til our fingers metaphorically bleed. Speaking as a mama who has sent 3 kids off to different preschools, I wanted to help cut your search down by directing you to Discovery Gardens Fullerton.

Discovery Gardens Fullerton is a Nature-Based Preschool that opened its doors on August 16th, 2021, and never looked back.

For those of us who prioritize the time our kids spend out in nature, this school is an incredible opportunity. They aim to spend the majority of the day in the Outdoor Classrooms, rain or shine, and within the principles outlined the Reggio-Emilia philosophy and Constructivist teaching and learning. They offer high-quality care and education to all of their youngest learners with an emphasis on understanding and appreciating the natural world. Most importantly they pride themselves on providing an inclusive environment for children to wonder, create, and explore.

Enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year is still open! So, as you consider Discovery Gardens Fullerton for your child’s first foray into a school expereince, we think these details will help:

  • Child-centered, developmentally-appropriate curriculum, inspired by the schools in Reggio-Emilia, Italy

  • Rooted in nature exploration and environmental awareness
