IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR SPRING 2022 – REGISTRATION IS OPENING SOON!

Join us in the woods this spring – we’ll start at the tail end of winter and watch the woods change until the beginning of summer! Watch everything come back to life, see who wakes up in the woods, who returns, who sings, and who squirms! Forage for wild edibles, bake mud pies, and watch the ever-changing skies!

Please note that we are always in the process of updating our website. For the most up-to-date information concerning our Spring 2022 session and how COVID-19 is affecting our programs, head our to Registration page!

Philosophy:

In each of our programs, we strive to play, learn, and grow, and to build relationships to the land, each other, and ourselves through meaningful learning opportunities in a natural environment. Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic facilitators loves to learn alongside your child while they explore their curiosities and wonder at the ever-changing environment. We ask guiding questions that help to deepen a child’s curiosity and encourage opportunities to build confidence, resilience, and self-regulation. We do this through a child-led and play-based approach, and we follow an inquiry- or interest-based emergent curriculum (we dig deeper when and where there is interest with no predetermined “plan”).
