Adventures - Preschool Program

Encourage your child's curiosity and love for the natural world! Your child will spend time outside each day exploring the woods, visiting the farm animals, harvesting in the garden and hiking around the farm. Each class focuses on a different farm or nature topic, and addresses various learning styles with age-appropriate, hands-on activities and explorations. We provide a safe and positive environment for children so that their enthusiasm for being outside and caring for their world will continue at home and throughout their lives. 

Program space is limited. Enrollment is by lottery. Limited scholarships available. Children must be toilet trained to participate.
