New Nature Play Educational Program

Nature Play Program Starting September 2018

Nimesh and Teena Patel have started a nature play educational program for children in Orlando. Barefoot Village is an innovative, unique outdoor experience for children ages 3 to 6, distinguished by its commitment to total nature immersion, interest-led flow learning, emergent curriculum, inquiry-based teaching style and authentic play. The goal is to tap into the children’s sense of wonder about nature while teaching basic environmental and natural science principles in the field. The fall program dates are separated into 6-week block sessions: September 12–October 24 and October 31–December 5; Wednesdays,
9 a.m.–1 p.m.; $35/week.
