Young Naturalist Preschool ProgramYoung Naturalist Staff

Our preschool staff includes five classroom teachers, an office administrator, preschool program director and several museum naturalists. Our lead preschool teachers are college-trained professionals with extensive knowledge and experience in working with young children. With a teacher/child ratio of 1 to 8, each student is given the individual attention they need to thrive inside the classroom and the opportunity to explore their surroundings in a safe, secure setting.
