Worldmind School inspires children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world through mindful, child-led outdoor experiences without neglecting important academic principles. Students who actively participate in the world outside their window often become more attentive, joyful and less anxious, which opens the mind to clear learning pathways. Our unique educational curriculum promotes important educational principles as well as a compassionate understanding of bio and social diversity that lasts a lifetime.

What Our Families Say
“WNIS is the kind of place you can leave your child knowing that they will be empathized with, understood, and empowered – rare but highly valued qualities.”
“While our boys attended Worldmind Nature Immersion School (WNIS), they have shown significant improvement with their emotional intelligence, mental and physical health, and social competence- among other developmental skills emerged through WNIS ECE program. We believe these elements are breakthrough impacts- foundational prerequisites for success in school, the workplace, and developing future environmental stewards in our nature-deficient society. WNIS ECE program shifts core concepts in early childhood development that forces us as parents into rethinking current health and education policies.”
“Our family across ages has been deeply impacted by WNIS, but the most interesting has been our youngest. She was only 4 months old when we began, and spent much of her first winter bundled up on my back at school, but once she could be down there was no stopping her. She exhibits a level of independence that her two older sisters took much longer to come to. She walked sooner, talked sooner, and is easily content with nothing but the elements to play with. As a whole. my children have moved away from the need for any toys in general, and prefer their imaginations. I believe we are as a family much healthier as well. In one of the worst winter seasons currently, and my kids barely have a sniffle. Including my baby.”
“We are over a month into the school year and the improvements I’ve seen in my child’s mood in his speech and cognitive functioning are profound. He loves going, he loves his teachers and he’s always so excited to tell me about his day. And not once has he been in a bad mood at the end of his school day. I’m so thrilled for such a program to exist here in Colorado and feel very fortunate to have my child be a part of it. Well done ladies.”
“My kiddos and I attended a summer session in 2017 and absolutely loved it. They were so excited to meet up with friends and participate in the nature activities. We learned so much about our surroundings. My kids still talk about attending and ask frequently when we are going back!! Thank you for having the summer sessions available.”
“My children and I have been attending classes since we moved to Denver almost 2 years ago. We have all learned so much about our new home and the natural world around it. My children have also learned to express themselves in conflicts so that they feel heard and still respect and hear the other child’s concerns through working with Worldmind staff. They have all grown so much in their confidence, awareness, physical ability, social skills and scientific knowledge. Thank you, Worldmind!”
“We’ve been attending WMNS for two years and have experience in both the child and caregiver and the drop off program and can’t say enough wonderful things. The compassionate, caring staff, the child led play, my kids have benefitted from this program so much in such a short time!”
