“100 million times recommend! Jess and her nature school are magical. My son loves every second he gets to spend at NC Nature and Nurture. Jess has the kindest heart. She teaches my son so much and he has so much fun at the same time. He loves her dearly. Jess sends home pictures and emails and updates often so I was always in the know. My son gets to hike in the woods, make magic potion and playdoh, hunt for critters, and play with his friends. Jess had them adventuring and learning every second of the day. I highly recommend this school to anybody and everybody! Jess is THE BEST. We’re going back for summer camps this year too!” – L.F. Holly Springs, NC

“It’s everything you want for your child that you feel like you might not be able to provide. Time outdoors, exploring and being curious, learning through play and getting messy in nature! The class size is small which is perfect for these little humans, getting their feet wet through being away from home. Jess brings so much joy, wonder, silliness, and life to each day and I can tell that she is entirely in her element and truly enjoys guiding children through nature and play. My son says she is his best friend—what more could you want?!” – L.R. Apex, NC

“My three year old son loved going with with Ms. Jess every day!! He enjoyed carefully crafted activities with the luxury and freedom to safely explore. He experienced a verity of tactile testing and teamwork which matched his developmental ability. He loved the pretend play area and making “potions”. As a parent and former teacher, I loved how he was able to align with nature in such a safe and loving environment.” K.S., New Hill, NC

“My 3 yo joined in November and it has been fantastic for us. At first we were skeptical as I am not an active outdoor person. When we went to visit the school, we were very impressed with how Jess made our LO feel comfortable to explore her surroundings. For a week after all we heard from our LO was “I want to go to new school and play!”. She LOVES Miss Jess and is learning so much about being outdoor, observing nature, and having fun. Jess, the owner, is amazing at what she is doing for the school/kids. My LO had been in day care since 15 mo of age and had always been down with cold-fever-ear infections….Currently she has not had an active infection thanks to all the outdoor fresh air she gets. This is a HUGE plus for me”. – G.A. Apex, NC

“My daughter has been in the preschool program since September and she has loved all of her outdoor adventures! The owner, Ms. Jess, is super sweet and great with the kids. She is a mother of 3 and has a degree in psychology. Easily checks off all of the mama wish list boxes! 10 out of 10” – L.G. Pittsboro, NC

“My daughter has so much energy going to preschool every day! She loves to go to school and HATES to leave. This preschool is a truly unique experience – our only complaint is that it isn’t all day!” R.Y. , Apex NC

“My 4 year old daughter absolutely loved it! Ms Jess made every day an adventure full of fun and learning. My daughter would always come home with exciting stories of what happened throughout the day”. S.S., Fuquay Varina, NC

“My 3 yo LOVES it! He comes home discussing frogs, turtles, worms, and squirrels!” C.B. Apex, NC

“We went for a week for summer camp. My daughter really loved it!” J.L., Apex, NC

“My daughter went to camp last summer and absolutley loved it. I know the owner/teacher Jess very well and she is an amazing teacher, amazing with kids, and just all around wonderful person. It brought me so much joy to see my daughter come home from her camp each day with such happiness and excitement over the day. Definitely a must do!” A.L. Apex, NC

“My grandchildren (ages 3&2) loved every second of nature camp this summer and cried when they had to leave! I love that Jessica sends an email with pictures—gave us a lot to talk about over dinner! Great activities, took precautions with heat advisories and rain, great communication. Highly recommend!” G.T., Fuquay Varina, NC
