The mission of Boston Outdoor Preschool Network is to provide programs that meet the developmental needs of the whole child while initiating them into a lifelong relationship with the natural world.

Boston Outdoor Preschool Network (BOPN) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization focused on nature-based early childhood education. We are committed to nature immersion, interest-led learning, inquiry-based teaching, and authentic play. Our school year and summer programs are located in Roslindale/JP, Wellesley, and Malden. We offer full-day and half-day programs for children ages 15 months through 6 years.
