Coming in August 2022... Holland Heights Nature-based Learning.

HPS will work with Outdoor Discovery Center to develop Nature-based Learning at Holland Heights Elementary. MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON!

The staff at Holland Heights Elementary is teaming up with the Outdoor Discovery Center to provide experiences and lessons beyond the classroom to help students to learn and grow. The program will focus on academic subjects in a way that help kids make sense of the world around them.

Students will experience:

  • Exploration that ties math, science, and literacy to their surroundings
  • Regular visits from ODC nature experts
  • Trips to local parks, trails, and nature preserves
  • A love of learning and a sense of confidence

This tuition-free program will start with Kindergarten & 1st-Grade classes in the Fall of 2022. In 2023, Grades 2 & 3 will be added. Grades 4 & 5 will start the program in 2024!

Families in the Holland Heights Elementary neighborhood will have the first opportunity to enroll in this exciting new program with the Outdoor Discovery Center. We will share more information soon about applying and enrolling in this program.
