Hello and thank you for your interest in Pax Natura, the premier preschool in Wilmington, NC. My name is Casey Davis, the school director. Although we are a unique school, we are still a part of Childcare Network.
At Pax Natura we teach our children to be eco-conscious, help them embark on a love for gardening and getting back to nature through natural play. We teach diversity and tolerance in our classrooms and reinforce these ideas about our community. As well, we share with our children and families the need for healthy eating habits and physical activity. Our natural playgrounds and gardens are beautiful.
It is important to us to participate in many community events developing an awareness of community, diversity, and leadership in our children. Our wonderful staff works hard each day to instill an eagerness for learning all of these concepts in each child.
Kindergarten Prep Academy (KPA) is our structured pre-Kindergarten program that prepares 4 and 5 year olds for using “The Investigators Club” curriculum. This preschool curriculum brings out the wonder in a child’s mind by connecting play, imagination, and learning to their world. The InvestiGators Club, challenges children to use their senses, ask questions, and find the answers in a supportive, language- and literacy-rich environment.” We offer this program year round with a Summer Readiness program that keeps children learning and prepared for Kindergarten. We have many family celebration opportunities and offer Spanish lessons, physical education with “Grow to Health” and music with Mr. Mark. You will find that our learning environments are second to none.
During our full day Adventure Summer Camp, our children participate in fun learning adventures. Our campers participate in Cooking Club, Art Club, and 4H Club. Campers will also visit the Serpenterarium and Fort Caswell to learn about our coastal ecosystems. Visitors are invited to the school to help educate the children, including Andy from Fort Fisher Aquarium and 5 Star Petting Zoo. Let’s not forget about our onsite water slide. The children and staff love this part of our playground. You can see pictures in our web gallery
album of them enjoying the opening of it.
We would love to have you as a part of our Pax Natura family. Please call to schedule a tour or come visit our school on Wilshire Boulevard. We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
