About

What is Forest Preschool?

Preschool outdoors! We blend early literacy, early mathematics, art and science with the outdoors to help develop a well-rounded preschooler! On a day-to-day basis, that looks like some time spent on letter recognition, counting, and creating all in the context of nature. Our centers revolve around nature-based play, like our mud kitchen!

Additional information about forest preschools can be found in this slide deck.
