Tour our award-winning facility and meet the Nature's Way staff.

Enrollment for returning Nature's Way families begins in December.
Open online enrollment begins January 20 at 12 pm for the 2016-17 school year.  Mark your calendar and check back soon for details; Nature's Way Preschool is a very popular program, and classes have filled on enrollment day in past years!
Nature's Way Preschool offers experiences typically found in child-centered programs such as discovery-based learning through play, sensory exploration, large and fine motor activity, creative expression, making friends, and developing social skills.  Our nine acres of natural areas serve as an extension of the classroom, allowing children to experience daily nature walks and exploration through forests and along a creek. The naturalized playground provides opportunities for digging, playing in the mud, climbing on rocks, building ‘beaver dams’ and balancing on logs.  Nature’s Way Preschool is licensed by the State of Michigan, and classes are limited in size to 16 students and two outstanding teachers.
