Want happier, healthier, smarter kids?

Recent studies have directly linked time spent in nature to increased happiness, smarts, emotional health, reduced stress, and even better test scores. The latest statistics on declining childhood “nature” time are startling. Kids just aren’t getting outside and exploring like they used to a generation ago.

Earth Native wants to help. A major part of our school’s mission is to help children develop strong connections to nature. We do this though a unique method of environmental education called Coyote Mentoring which utilizes child’s passions -- old school stuff like playing in the mud, building forts, catching critters, hiding and sneaking, and skipping stones as a foundation for adventure and learning. We use these child’s passions as the spark that drives a curriculum that is centered around natural learning cycles that will help your children not just build strong connections but learn a ton about the natural world around them.
