Published DateHOLDERNESS — Blue Heron School at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is offering a full day program for the 2013-2014 school year and is currently accepting new registrations. Families can choose from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. sessions.
Blue Heron School began in 2010 as New Hampshire's first nature-based Montessori early learning center with a child-focused approach and daily outdoor experiences. The school, for ages three to six, operates from September to June, Monday through Friday.
Blue Heron School is designed as a three-year program; students start at age three and have two years of preschool and one year of kindergarten. Each year builds on the previous year as younger students learn by modeling older students and older students learn by teaching and assisting younger students.
"We are happy to offer extended hours to families," said Laura Mammarelli, Blue Heron School Director. "Extending our schedule until 3:30 will make it possible for more children to experience Blue Heron. We are excited to have more time every day for outdoor adventures and activities."
Blue Heron School is currently accepting registrations for the 2013-2014 school year. More information about Blue Heron School is at www.nhnature.org/programs/blue_heron_school.php.
