Children will explore Nature and STEM opportunities in a hands-on, play-based, interdisciplinary program that includes Early Literacy, Creative Arts, Wellness, and Cooperative Problem-Solving. Children will imagine, create, and thrive in a nurturing, developmentally-appropriate program that supports their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive interests, needs, and abilities.

Our focus is on nature awareness, and we will play outside during most of our day, except in extreme weather. Our large, fenced-in outdoor PLAYSCAPE has areas for gardening, composting, and exploring in our Muddy Kitchen, Dolo-Mitey Quarry, Dino Den, Moon Mesa, and Lazy (dry!) Creek, Fairy Garden, and Nature Nursery. Coming on Labor Day weekend: 15’ round Sandy Pit!


Our Enclosed Paddy-O connects to our Indoor Space, which is open to our kitchen and includes gears, gadgets and gizmos galore, dress-ups and dramatic play, cars and trains, LARGE and small blocks, and our Sensory Science Lab! “If we don’t know how, we’ll figure it out!”
