The Power of Environmental Hands-on Learning
After-school and Weekend Programs
TNAC provides children with art and nature programs, giving them the opportunity to experience enriching extracurricular activities. In our art programs, artists and various media are explored, allowing each student to display his or her natural creativity. Our nature programs teach children in-depth information and fun facts about plants and animals, providing them with a greater appreciation of the world around them.
