An Outdoor School Introduction for Our Littlest Explorers!

Toddler Connections (TC) is an eight-week group for toddlers ages 15 months to 2.9, led by BOPN co-founder Sarah Murray and seasoned teaching staff.  Children are accompanied by parents or other caregivers. Families connect with nature and one another and learn about nature-based early childhood education. We engage children through song, reading nature-based stories, and free play.


Your child will benefit from regular socialization with a group of peers in the comforting presence of their parent or caregiver. Parents appreciate spending time with an experienced educator, who serves as a resource regarding preschool, parenting, and more!

"We absolutely love the kind and caring teachers, they have truly been a gift for our family. BOPN has allowed our son to find a welcoming and nurturing place that meets his needs in so many ways. He has made some wonderful connections to nature and to his friends"
