Nature School Enrichment Program
Based in Cutchogue, October 1st through June 11th. 
This enrichment  program is designed to run for 32 weeks of the school year. The Nature School, which is separate from our one hour regular programs, is currently scheduled for 9:00 am to 12 noon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for grades K-3. If there are enough requests for upper primary (grades 3-5), we will branch off and run a separate program. This enrichment program is structured to build each day on previous knowledge. We will have month-long themes.

Our program strives to meet the NYS and national standards. We incorporate art, writing, and math into our science programs. Conservation and citizen-science programs are an important part of our curriculum.
