My son has attended the summer program for the last two summers and LOVES it. He will make connections all year long to things that he learned during the summer at camp. It's so fun to hear him recall a fun fact or activity he did. He also has some special food needs and the teachers and staff do a wonderful job helping us to meet this needs. I feel very comfortable leaving him in their care.

My two children have attended summer classes at River Legacy for five years. They love it! They have developed a great appreciation of nature and the environment. We also attend After Dark in the Park each year, which is a good balance of fun and learning.

The best kept secret in town is the pre-school Nature School. The wonderful staff make it so inviting to the kids. Kids look forward to the child centered activities and get to know so much about nature. I highly recommend this preschool for someone that is looking to expand their child's knowledge about nature and science before they enter kindergarten.
