Outdoor Educator & Aide


Village is building preschools rooted in community, mindfulness, nature, and exploration. Our highest intention is for each of our little ones to leave us ready for a life filled with growth, gratitude, joy, and discovery. As part of our overarching vision, we welcomed our inaugural class of children this fall for a nearly all-outdoors experience utilizing Brooklyn gorgeous outdoors space, primarily Prospect Park. Through our immersive outdoor nature program, we develop children who are present in both their inner and outer worlds. We believe that a strong connection to nature builds a sense of curiosity and awe of the world in which we live in and creates a strong sense of gratitude, connection and respect for the Earth, self, and all beings.
