A Nature Immersive Preschool & Kindergarten


Our full day arboretum program is a licensed child care program that ensures children are getting the high quality outdoor time they need each day.  Children spend their morning exploring the diverse landscapes of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society & Elm Bank Reservation in "outdoor classrooms" carefully selected for safety and diversity of natural elements that support children's imagination and creativity.  In the early afternoon, the children walk back to our indoor space for rest & project time.  With renewed vigor & energy, the class enjoys many a sunny afternoon in the gardens!

“Science is his absolute favorite class, and I can’t help but think it has a lot to do with the time he spent with you and all of the wonderful teachers at BOPN.”
