        Where Together, we explore nature, engage inspiration, & empower discovery. As everything connects, every new experience and every new challenge is a learning journey.

        Our Mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, & inspiring environment supporting the whole child and their growth.

        We Believe that learning happens holistically through relationships with people & wildlife in nature.
        We Empower children through creativity & discovery to think for themselves while considering the environment & others.
        We Envision curious, open-ended, meaningful, & engaging; STEAM-powered problem-solving & exploration.
        We Strive for a natural environment that immerses us in joyful experiences.
        We Value & Emphasize a multicultural, JEDI-focused, and age-appropriate approach that respects and honors All children as individuals, All families as unique, & of course, All of nature. 
        Understanding that a child's work is discovery, inquiry, & play, we look for a balance of independence & community building.

        We fully commit to a positive & supportive learning environment, inclusive, open to all learners, & sensitive to cultural diversity.  

        We believe that regular connections with the natural world encourage children to develop:
        * Respect for local cultures and climates and themselves as a part of nature.
        * Feelings of unity, peace, and well-being as global citizens.

        We believe it is essential for children to:
        * Be respected as competent, powerful learners and risk-takers who have a voice in what they create and learn through nature.
        * Be supported in developing life skills through holistic nature-based learning.

        We believe it is vital for families to:
        * Understand the value of children's daily connections with nature.
        * Support children's appropriate risk-taking and exploration in nature.
        * Enjoy regular experiences in the natural world with their children.

        We believe it is crucial for educators to:
        * Allow enough time each day for children to explore freely in nature-based spaces.
        * Support children's appropriate risk-taking and adventurous play in nature.
        * Provide children with opportunities for silence and contemplation in natural settings.
        * Encourage children's development of a sense of wonder and a sense of environmental stewardship.

        At A Child's Inspiration: Wildlife Discovery Garden, we strive to create learning experiences that are enriching, innovative, meaningful, and engaging. Our network of green spaces/gardens/wildlife sanctuaries, including our very our Discovery Garden, and green spaces/gardens/nature centers located in urban and suburban communities around the Greater Philadelphia area enable us to develop, evaluate, and sustain nature-based education and early childhood education programs in all settings.
