Home School Programs

Your home schooled child can join our professional Environmental Educators as we introduce them to ecological and biological principles, facilitating an appreciation and understanding of the natural world. Your child will become familiar with plants and animals throughout New Jersey and discover how human activities affect the environment.

We have three program options available to home school parents:
  1. Home-school Trifecta: Individual families with children 4-12 years old may register for this new collaborative program presented by Tenafly Nature Center, Flat Rock Brook, and Teaneck Creek Conservancy. (4 year old must be accompanied by adult) 

  2. Home School Group: A home school group can schedule a private class with a topic of their choice. 

  3. Parent Workshops: Tenafly Nature Center, a registered New Jersey Professional Development Provider, offers many workshops designed to train educators of all ages/grades in a curriculum of wildlife appreciation and fun, hands-on activities. The activities assist students of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment, leading to informed decisions, responsible behavior and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment upon which life depends.
