An all-outdoor, immersive learning experience in our open-air classroom of meadows, streams, ponds and forest trails.
We are incredibly fortunate to be learning and growing at two beautiful nature preserves in Croton and Mt Kisco for the 2021-22 school year.
In these expansive open-air classrooms, our students build connections to the land and each other throughout the year through a combination of story-based learning, multi-sensory exploration and age-appropriate social development.
Everyone is still required to bring a mask.
There will be some MASK ON activities still in our programs.
There will be other MASK OFF activities in our programs.
Vaccination records are required to be submitted in August. (More on our COVID policies here.)

Our Forest Preschool is based at two beautiful locations in Westchester County, Brinton Brook Sanctuary in Croton and Marsh Sanctuary in Mt Kisco. These serene, 156-acre preserves provide a wonderful open-air classroom filled with meadows, streams, deep woods, and ponds for our students to explore throughout the seasons.
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 (9:15-12:00) and afternoons (1:00-3:45) Monday through Friday for kids 3-5 years old. Families may choose two, three or five days a week.
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 email@example.com or 914-849-9143 for more info or to arrange a site visit.
