In the Rewilding Forest Preschool, children learn and grow through story-based imaginative learning, multi-sensory exploration, and age-appropriate social development. Through immersive exposure to the natural world, students foster connections to the land, each other, and themselves that form the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

Overview

The Forest Preschool meets for two sessions, three days a week, Monday through Wednesday, from September 10, 2018, to June 21, 2019. Please note that we are currently only offering a morning session (9:15-12)

Location

We are incredibly fortunate to be learning and growing at Saw Mill River Audubon’s Brinton Brook Sanctuary in Croton-on-Hudson. This 156-acre preserve has meadows, streams, deep woods, and a pond. In the event of rough weather, we have an alternate program site in the Croton area.
