Outdoor Learning Forest preschool classes take place 100% outdoors. We gear up and enjoy the weather, rain or shine, in all seasons! In extreme circumstances or emergency situations, we have access to a classroom in the main building of Glen Meadows Retirement Community. We are currently renovating an RV that will serve as a new Mobile Nature Classroom, which will also double as emergency shelter space.

Family Involvement Families actively participate in our learning adventures! We welcome you into the forest to play during select Family Forest Days. We also offer monthly opportunities for families to attend a local outing at a nearby wild space for field trips. These outings allow families to develop kinship while we discover many more gems in our community. We also hold special activities with our 'grand friends' at the retirement community. (Calendar with details will be sent upon enrollment.)

Enrollment and Payments Please note that enrollment is for the full program year (September - May).   Initial, non-refundable payment is paid when you enroll, followed by 8 monthly payments (Sept 1 - April 1). If space is available, some sessions may be prorated for Jan. - May.

Note: Enrollment is for a school year commitment. If you must cancel your enrollment before the end of the program year, you are responsible for the balance of your registration until another child can fill the spot. 

If you need financial assistance, limited funding is available. We never want funding to be a barrier to our program, but please know that assistance is limited and designed for families with significant financial need. Please contact us to learn more.

Enrollment Requirements Your child must be three years old by Sept. 1 of the program year when s/he begins. Toilet-training is not required, but please let us know about this sensitive topic in advance so we can best support your child's needs.  Family Agreement & Handbook Immersive outdoor learning means just that - we are outdoors in all kinds of weather! We require that all parents read and sign our handbook and Family Agreement to acknowledge important policies that guide our programs.

Our calendar, gear guide, and other helpful details are provided in your confirmation email. We look forward to amazing adventures with you and your child!
