Our Secret Garden Indoor/Outdoor Nursery and Preschool (OSG) is a nature-based center aimed at nurturing children of all abilities to care for themselves, each other, and the earth in a quality educational program that kindles children's natural sense of wonder and intellectual curiosity.
Experiencing nature hands-on and then taking that experience into the classroom sparks learning at the highest level of each individual child's potential. OSG is committed to environmental stewardship believing that every child has incalculable worth and can make a positive difference in the community and in the world.
