Outdoor Learning

Our Facilities

Outdoor Learning Decks

Our outdoor learning decks are the perfect place for our preschoolers to do any of their indoor activities out in the open air.  We have nine decks located throughout our campus and each deck has it’s own shade, sink with soap and water, and storage cabinet filled will different activities the children can do on the decks.  CMP preschoolers love to eat their lunch and do other preschool activities while surrounded by trees and nature.  One deck is dedicated to our Imagination Playground blocks – children love getting creative while constructing forts and other awesome creations.  Our outdoor learning decks provide separate areas that teachers can hold class outdoors which create infinite possibilities at Carmel Mountain Preschool for outdoor learning.

The Art Studio

The Studio is nestled up in the corner of The Glenn right next to The Nature Lab. This outdoor educational environment is magical and a very special place for the children at Carmel Mountain Preschool.

Our studio offers a variety of projects including ongoing installations, sculptures, bookmaking, sewing, collages, drawing, and painting. The children explore a variety of materials ranging from recycled objects, natural found objects, wire, yarn, clay and paint.

The Nature Science Lab

The Nature Science Lab serves as a home base for conducting life science activities. The children learn through planned, hands-on activities and observations.

We spend time in the Nature Science Lab studying and caring for our creature friends including our collection of animals. In the Lab, one will find captive bugs, amphibians, and reptiles.

The Nature Science Lab is a wonderful addition to our beloved Glenn, and a favorite learning place for our children. Please stop by and check it out for yourself.

The Chicken Coop

Two important life skills for preschool children to learn are empathy and caring for others.  One of the ways that young children can learn these important skills is by caring for plants and animals.  Carmel Mountain Preschool students have the opportunity to help care for plants and different reptiles, amphibians and bugs in the Nature Lab but we wanted the preschoolers to have access to different types of animals.  Every year we hatch chicks in an incubator in our Kindergarten Prep classroom.  Our preschool students love to learn how a chick grows from an embryo and watch the chicks hatch and interact with them.

Organic Coffee and Tea Bar

Two of our Core Values at Carmel Mountain Preschool are, “We are a fun, loving, supportive family,” and “We are organic,”. We want our parents, visitors and staff to feel like they are welcome, they are a part of our family, and they are taken care of. To help us make you feel at home we have created an Organic Coffee & Tea Bar at Carmel Mountain Preschool that is open Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 1:00pm. You are welcome to come serve yourself some yummy organic coffee, organic tea or organic fresh fruit anytime our Organic Coffee & Tea Bar is open.

We love our facility. We think you will too.
