Blue Lotus Nature Preschool

At Blue Lotus Nature Preschool, we strive to educate the whole child using a Reggio Emilia approach based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community.  The blue lotus represents common sense; the use of wisdom and logic to create enlightenment.


Blue Lotus students learn through daily exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching natural environment, typically outdoors, and based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum.

We learn through natural play with each other and our animals, practical work in our gardens and barn, and creative projects in nature and in our art studio.

​Areas of learning in our unique environment:

  • Art - painting, sculpting, woodworking, and crafts

  • Movement - dance, parkour, and yoga

  • Culture - stories, poetry, music, food, and festivals

  • Self-Awareness - social grace, courtesy, and meditation

  • Environmental Studies - science, farming, gardening, and animal husbandry
