New WorldWonder Program Site

The education of our children would not be complete if we neglected to teach them to appreciate the wonder of nature and to understand the mysteries of life. That is the purpose of Doug Heetderks' WorldWonder, an experiential learning component of the life sciences curriculum at Westminster Christian School.

In WorldWonder, a student can observe a tortoise, ponder the swirls of water cascading over rocks, breathe the aroma of a bamboo forest, gather with peers at a fire pit to thank God for blessing us with His creation. The nexus of WorldWonder is the Nature Center where students will convene to study, celebrate, discuss, and piece together the lessons gained in their journeys through WorldWonder.

The site of the new WorldWonder Nature Center and grounds is currently under construction.  We anticipate welcoming students to this new facility in Fall 2019.  To learn more, click this link.

In the meantime, the WorldWonder curriculum is being taught at The Discovery Barn.
