“The world is the true classroom. The most rewarding and important type of learning is through experience, seeing something with your own eyes.”  Jack Hanna


We believe in getting outside the classroom to make learning fun and engaging.  Our central location on Long Island and proximity to New York City gives us the opportunity to visit and explore many interesting places. 


Here’s a sampling of some of our outings:
