Our Outdoor Classroom: It’s Happening!

We are so excited to begin the construction of Northport Nursery School’s outdoor classroom! The benefits of outdoor play are endless; at NNS, we believe outdoor play is critical to a child’s well-being, learning and personal growth.


Just as we prepare to commemorate our 75th graduating class, Northport Nursery School is embarking on a new, exciting chapter: the construction of our Outdoor Classroom! We are breaking ground on this project in more ways than one; it will be the first-of-its-kind classroom in the community.

It’s a big world in our little backyard. This outdoor open space will provide opportunities for children to be involved in a wide range of new and different hands-on activities. The Outdoor Classroom will offer a balance of physical activities and quiet exploration. Like our indoor classrooms, it will contain designated areas for meetings, art, music, movement, building, free exploration and water play. Our goal is to increase the time that our students spend outdoors, all while nurturing that sense of wonder that is so critical to their well-being and personal growth.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generous support of donors like you. This year’s fundraising efforts have allowed us to embark on this unique project, but in order to complete it we need to reach our total fundraising goal. You can help us get there!

No contribution to this project is too small (or big!): donations will go toward the construction of the Outdoor Classroom and the equipment that will make it so special: all-weather easels, benches and picnic tables, sensory tables and musical instruments.

We all have organizations that appeal to us for our support. We ask that you choose to support Northport Nursery School; after all, this is an organization that is close to your home and your heart.
