When I toured close to a dozen preschools more than a year ago, Nature Preschool was the last on the list. We went in with another school in mind but once we toured this school, we realized it was a perfect match. The owner is passionate about the school and kids and the school is well equipped. Kids learn outside of the regular classroom and spend a lot of time outside. My kid absolutely loves the school just as we do! It seems like the kids learn while playing. It's wonderful to see the worksheets for the week at the end of the week and this definitely gets my daughter taking about all she did during the week! Thank you Nature Preschool!

Nature School of Austin prepared our twins for success in kindergarten and beyond. The teachers are patience, creative, and caring. They use developmentally appropriate activities that are engaging, purposeful, and build skills in a gradual manner. I also loved that they emphasize outdoor exploration and play. We would highly recommend this school.

This small school program is a testament of Aarti Ahuja's discipline, hard work, and commitment to children. After teaching kindergarten in public school, she decided to create a quality environment for younger children in our community.

I am familiar with other preschools in the area, and hers is set apart by its flexible and extended hours. I am also quite familiar with most daycare facilities in the area, and what sets her place apart is its cleanliness and orderly schedule, the staff's professionalism, and her commitment to including regular enrichment classes such as Mandarin. I sent my child to Nature School with confidence...during my day I would often check the school schedule, happy in the knowledge that he was playing and learning outdoors within a safe and secure environment. I love how they adapt science lessons for the youngest students.
I was delighted by the theme of nature included in my son's take-home folder every week. Maria Montessori herself would have approved if she could have seen the well-prepared space and how each child engaged in self-directed learning activities. I saw a good balance of teacher-lead group time, learning through play, and thoughtfully planned independent work. My son made sweet friends during his time there, and I was so pleased that as he aged to become one of the oldest children, he developed leadership skills he wouldn't have been allowed to otherwise demonstrate as the youngest child in our family. I am sad that our wonderful preschool days have come to an end, but I am happy that we chose Nature School for that special, all-too-short-time in his life.
