We provide your child with a unique, nature and animal based curriculum that blends traditional readiness learning with preschool age appropriate activities.

We believe that children learn best through play and through activities that use all of their senses: taste, smell, touch, sight and hearing.

We ensure that each week includes opportunities for nature observation, guided play time, fine and gross-motor skill development, story time, outdoor exploration and animal discoveries.


Our teachers are fully certified.  Two teachers supervise each class at all times.
Maximum class size is 12 students
Classes are filled on a first come first served basis.  After class sizes are reached, we will accept applications on a waiting list.
