Nature Preschool / Forest Kindergarten 3 years - 6 years

Drop off your child for a morning of educational play with friends in the woods, while you get some precious hours to run errands or work. Rest assured that as your child runs, climbs, uses tools, draws, paints, listens to stories, sings, collects and observes creatures and plants, and has conversations with friends and play partners, they will thrive as they learn together while immersed in Nature, increasing their school readiness, and so much more!

Nature Explorers 5 years - 11 years

Drop off your child for some adventure play in the woods where they will make friends as they build wilderness skills, all while applying STEM knowledge, engaging in creative dramatics, drawing, painting, and creating.

After school Nature Tutoring is available upon request for an extra fee.

Courses

Bushcraft 5 years - 14 years

Wouldn't you love your children to learn the techniques, tools, and explore various ways of thinking that can help them out in unfavorable situations?
