MPA Outdoor Educational Gardens

 "There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature; to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony, and the beauty in nature." 

Maria Montessori


The MPA Educational Gardens are an extension of the classroom where students can develop their senses, learning, creativity, and confidence. By making the MPA grounds an integral part of our students' learning experience, we can foster a sense of place. 

Colorado is a special place to grow up and we strive for children to regularly experience many of its natural wonders firsthand, regardless of economic background.
