A Fully Outdoors Preschool & Kindergarten


BOPN's morning class at Pine Banks Park spends their days in the forest and the extraordinary wooded areas. The children are active participants in selecting which place we visit each day and how we explore them. 


Families drop-off and pick-up their children at the same outdoor spot every day.  We begin with a brief circle time that includes our greetings, songs, seasonal events, and safety rules. We then hike to our "adventure spot," which varies each day. We carefully select these outdoor "classrooms" for safety and diversity of natural elements that support children's imagination and creativity. 


At the adventure spot, children are free to play, explore, read, and participate in self-initiated or teacher-guided projects, all under close supervision of our talented, dedicated team of teachers


Just before pick up, the class will hike back to the designated pick up/drop off spot and play or read a story while waiting for families to arrive.

"I could tell from the first tour that there was something remarkable going on here. Kids who were stressed in standard classrooms were happy here, able to focus and play. The teachers were uniformly the nicest human beings I've met--I remarked to my husband that somebody was hiring for wisdom and kindness at this school. And BOPN gave us our best friends, the village we had been looking for."
