Welcome to the Natural Choice for Early Childhood Education!

 Sliding Snapper!

It’s true! A few years ago, a mama snapping turtle, who laid and buried a batch of eggs on top of Toad Mountain in our big kid play yard, decided to take the express way home.

A class of of pre-schoolers cheered her on as she made her way down the slide. This is just a small sampling of the meaningful teaching moments the children at Frog Pond experience daily (though is certainly the first time we have witnessed a turtle using a slide!) Be sure to turn your volume up to hear the reaction of the kids.

Frog Pond is owned and operated by Mother Nurture Company, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to serving working families with young children and connecting children with nature.
