About Green Steps
At Green Steps we have made it our mission to connect children with nature and develop environmental knowledge. We believe that learning must be fun and as educators, we nurture the curiosity to explore the outdoors. We believe a change in our behavior towards the planet starts by understanding the process that maintains life on it. This change starts when we become aware and responsible for our intimate connection to nature. We teach hands-on natural sciences using the outdoors as a playground and laboratory.

At Green Steps we have further developed the Montessori Method and apply it on nature education. We have designed a triple focus curriculum, which builds simultaneously intrapersonal, interpersonal and ecological intelligence. Instead of forcing children to study indoors, we facilitate learning outdoors. Chinese proverb pins down our learning approach when applied to nature: Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; let me do it and I’ll understand.
