Teatown Nature Program Nurtures Pocantico Hills Preschoolers

POCANTICO HILLS, N.Y. — When you can’t get the kids out into nature, what do you do? You bring nature to the kids.

The Teatown Lake Reservation, a nonprofit nature preserve in Ossining, has been packing up every critter from rabbits and turtles to snakes and frogs and bringing them to visit Pre-K students at the Pocantico Hills School in Tarrytown.

Teatown’s “Nurtured by Nature” program is intended to familiarize children with the animals, plants and trees that live right in their own backyards. The partnership, which began this year, backs up classroom instruction and helps children get a better understanding of nature and how they fit into the natural world. Click here to read full article.
