Preschool / Elementary


The WorldWonder program, created by Westminster educator Doug Heetderks, is an experiential learning component of the life sciences curriculum. Students from preschool through fifth grade visit the Discovery Barn, the Nature Center or the Wild Acre once a week for on-campus field trips to experience the wonder of nature.

This hands-on program inspires learning through exploration and instills an appreciation for God's creation by encouraging children to touch, see, hear and learn about the amazing animals and plants found on campus. From tortoises, to goats, parrots, and more, Westminster students have unique access to an array of flora and fauna. 

The Wild Acre also boasts kid-friendly obstacle courses that support physical activity, cognitive skills, and motor skills.
