Can’t recommend La Fontaine or the Nature school enough. It has been life changing for my kids, which in return, has been life changing for me. The curriculum and being outdoors has been amazing for my son. The owners and staff truly care about their Vision and the families that attend La Fontaine schools. Cleanliness is a 10/10 also. Communication is also very strong here. They are entirely transparent and prompt in communications. You won’t regret sending your children here.

The best experience for our family! The teachers and staff are very kind and calm mannered with the kids. They are well trained qualified teachers and it shows, our only wish is Nature School lasted past PreK! Luckily, you have the option with LPS to stay with the La Fontaine schools through 5th grade, and that’s where our little one will be. Very impressed and can’t say enough great things about La Fontaine!

I can not describe the joy i get from pictures from my granddaughters school. It is a nature/farm school. She is in pre k. My moms family were farmers and her grandfathers family were farmers for many generations. To see her experience all the things she does at this unique school warms my heart. I am sure there are generations of family members smiling down at this sweet child as she experiences things that can only be experienced in this setting.

My daughter gained so much knowledge, wonderful memories, and hopefully life-long friendships during her experience at The Nature School. Her teachers have loved her every step of the way and we are so grateful for each of them. As we conclude our experience at The Nature School my tears are mostly happy tears, but truthfully, they’re a bit sad as I think about one this wonderful chapter of her life closing.

I cannot put into words how much this school means to us. Our son wakes up every morning excited to go to school. The empathy he’s developed toward others and his respect for wildlife and plant-life developed tremendously while at The Nature School. I was very worried that he might not be prepared for kindergarten but I don’t have that worry anymore after our experience at The Nature School.

After a few years of attending, I can say that this is a very professional and trustworthy organization. The owners care a lot about their service to our family and my children. No organization is without blemish but I can say that each time I’ve shared feedback that I’ve been heard. Sometimes directly with the owners. It’s clear that they want to offer a first-class service. As a result, our experience has been really good.
