My Nature school

We are pleased to be partnering with White Bear Lake Area Schools in providing Early Childhood and Family Education (ECFE) and Play and Learn Preschool experiences at Tamarack Nature Center.
Imagine a preschool where creativity, curiosity and wonder are inspired by the natural world. Adding a new twist to the typical early childhood curriculum, the program at Tamarack Nature Center revolves around nature--learning from it, about it and within it.
