Preschool is now a Demonstration Site in the Outdoor Classroom Project!
After review and observation of our preschool outdoor activities and engagement, El Montecito School San Roque has been recognized as meeting the goals of the Outdoor Classroom Project (OCP). Our preschool will be available for others to learn about ways to engage children in learning in outdoor settings as early educators get exposure to the advantages of this model. The OCP is dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality, and benefit of outdoor experiences for children in early care and education programs through providing educational and consulting services on the value and design of engaging outdoor learning environments to teachers, administrators, and parents.
If you would like to see more about the OCP, check out the short video they have posted on YouTube: Outdoor Classroom Project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNgq2WO3mgg
