Our school is very fortunate to be surrounded by so much nature in the city. The school is within walking distance to the North Park Village Nature Center and is surrounded by trees, greenery, and local wildlife and flowers.

Maria Montessori placed a great emphasis on nature and nature education. Our school tries to find ways to bring nature into the classroom or to have the students interact with nature. Students have the opportunity to plant edible flowers, vegetables, fruits, and plants in our school’s garden area.

Wonder also works closely with our local neighborhood association to improve the community gardens for the enjoyment of not only our neighbors and students, but anyone who visits the community playground and gardens.
