Outdoor Preschool

Our outdoor preschool is a nature-based program serving children ages 3-6. The school operates under the principles of Forest Kindergarten, which is an educational approach that prioritizes daily nature immersion and play-based and place-based learning. Developmental and educational experts agree that play is the ideal format for learning in early childhood. Our highly-trained educators observe and inspire children’s play to promote developmentally appropriate social, emotional, and cognitive skills. In the place-based model of learning, children to return to the same beloved land again and again to feel at home, to witness the magic of seasons, and engage in deep and complex play in relationship with the natural world. Our emergent curriculum leads us to follow the children, sometimes quite literally, off the path to newfound discoveries! Teachers engage in reflective practices after each session and document children’s explorations for parents to read and see later.
