Our Approach

Hobson has enjoyed a long history in Naperville’s original one-room schoolhouse and its adjoining woods. Our unique location has allowed us to provide our children with a connection to nature not easily found in our community’s schools. Our children enjoy outside play everyday, often exploring the woods with their classes.

This connection to nature extends to inside the classroom as well. Sensory tables are filled with seasonal bits of nature, toys are made from natural materials and children bird watch from the reading loft.

At Hobson we know that children respond well to and need experiences in nature.  This fact is well researched and has been a central part of our curriculum for over 45 years.
