Our all-outdoor, open air classroom is now open over the summer!

Our Forest Preschool program has already been offering children an all-outdoor, immersive learning experience throughout the school year months, in an open-air classroom of meadows, streams, ponds and forest trails. Now we are expanding our program to the summertime, too!

Summer sessions are offered mornings (9:30-12:15) at Marsh Sanctuary in Mt Kisco for children who are fully potty trained and able to wear masks consistently. Registration is for the full five-day-a-week program only, and families can register for the month of July ($726) or August ($545).

Program Overview


We are incredibly fortunate to be learning and growing at Marsh Sanctuary in Mt Kisco this summer. This beautiful 156-acre preserve offers a wonderful open-air classroom filled with meadows, streams, deep woods, and ponds for our students to explore all summer. Immersed in this natural setting, our students build connections to the land, each other and themselves through a combination of story-based learning, multi-sensory exploration and age-appropriate social development. We offer two sessions, mornings (9:30-12:15) and afternoons (1:15-4:00) Monday through Friday for kids 3-5 years old. Families must register for five days a week for summer sessions.


If you are looking for an all-outdoor setting for your preschooler to explore their imagination and build connections that last a lifetime, we invite you to reach out to our Manager, Megan Cohen, at or 914-849-9143 for more info or to arrange a site visit.
