Anticipated Opening October 2022

Malden/Melrose Morning Program

< Back

A fully outdoor, mixed-aged program

BOPN's morning class at Pine Banks Park will spend their days in the forest and the extraordinary wooded areas. The children will be 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. 


Children have a small snack at the adventure spot and then 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.
