Boston Outdoor Preschool Network offers an innovative, nature-based curriculum to toddlers, preschoolers, pre-kindergartners and kindergartners. We aim to foster community and stewardship by partnering with local outdoor spaces in the Greater Boston Area.
Our unique programming encourages creativity by providing children with stimulating play activities that foster problem solving skills as well as persistence. Through engaging with their environment children develop habits of thought which not only prepare them for school but also increase their overall social-emotional wellbeing.
