Nature and the Natural World
A fundamental theme at Whitehouse Prep is “nature” and the notion that we develop, both as individuals and as a community, in accordance with a natural process that must be understood, appreciated and respected. There are no short cuts in terms of child development and in that regard, the law of the farm certainly applies: “You cannot harvest in the fall what you have not sowed and cultivated months before in the spring.”
These principles are shown to our students through various means, though with an emphasis on involving them in a variety of gardening, planting and animal projects. This program is closely integrated with our intergenerational program as well. The “nature” theme is also demonstrated in our natural playground.
