A Fully Outdoors Preschool & Kindergarten


Opening up the world of outdoor exploration for children is what drives us! We spend our days in the forest and the extraordinary gardens. The children are active participants in selecting which place we visit each day and how we explore them. Our operational strategies, safety protocols, and consistent daily routines help us to provide safe and fun adventures for each child. We explore a wide range of habitats with the children, including:

  • extensive wooded areas

  • over 5 acres of gardens, including a children's garden, vegetable garden, herb garden, formal garden, trial garden, and pollinator garden

  • open fields and meadows

  • brooks and vernal pools

  • the "compost mountain"
