welcome to the north routt preschool!
North Routt Preschool capitalizes on its unique location in the Elk River Valley, approximately 17 miles north of Steamboat Springs, to provide a rich child-centered nature-based learning environment for children ages one to five. We celebrate the “outdoor classroom” in every season through our daily rhythms of exploration, play, problem-solving and connection. Using a nature-based, thematic learning approach, our teachers strive to empower our students to be inquisitive, explorers, and self motivated learners, preparing them for the academic and life journey they have ahead.
As a registered 501c(3) non-profit, we are guided by the following mission and vision:
To cultivate the personal and intellectual growth of our children through experiential environmental learning and a collaborative focus on respect, responsibility and community.
Through appreciation and exploration of our local environment and culture, we create confident, capable, and resilient environmental stewards of the future.
