About Us

We provide a comprehensive developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum with an emphasis on a child’s connection with nature. The program follows the forest kindergarten model and is “child lead” with teachers acting as facilitators for learning. Children enrolled in our program come dressed appropriately for the weather of the day. We spend 75% of our day immersed in the natural environment that surrounds our school. Daily activities include nature walks, group meetings, interacting with farm animals and the onsite garden, observing the changes of the season, creating natural structures, and using natural materials to create works of art.
