Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom

What are Certified Nature Explore Classrooms?

Certified Nature Explore Classrooms are dynamic, nature-based play and learning spaces. Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom Design Services apply research-based, field-tested design principles to create these nature-rich outdoor spaces that can be located anywhere a school, child care center, park, or other community site might have a traditional playground.  To become certified, groups must create a well-designed outdoor space and staff has to commit to staff development and family involvement.   Each year classrooms must be recertified.
