Discover the world in nature


Stay tuned for new program offerings, current program openings, events, and blog posts.


My son is so excited to share what he learned when I pick him up each day. He's more inquisitive, independent, and fearless than he was before. Since attending preschool at BOPN, he seeks "activities" rather than asking for screen time.

BOPN is such a magical place, and to be honest, I think not even a European forest kindergarten can compare (even though the concept started there). Thanks so much, because in the end it's the teachers that make it all happen!

The nature interaction and the encouragement of emotional and social development is exceptional. I love the daily feedback via the Storypark app, and the teachers are of the highest caliber. I would recommend BOPN without reservation!

Boston Outdoor Preschool Network (BOPN) is a small non-profit (founded in 2019). Our mission is to provide programs that meet the developmental needs of the whole child while initiating them into a lifelong relationship with the natural world. 

What started as one half day preschool class in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts has quickly grown into a network of programs for toddler, preschool, pre-K, and kindergarten.
We now offer half day (entirely outdoors), full day (with an indoor classroom), and summer at two different sites - Jamaica Plain/Roslindale and Wellesley/Dover. 

We are focused on excellence, equity, and innovation in all that we do. In addition to private preschool, we seek to develop programming designed to reach children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in outdoor early education.  

The best way to learn more about us is to see our classes in action! We offer tours regularly and encourage you to visit us soon!


We'd love to hear from you
