Backcountry Nature Preschool

We believe that children grow best outside. Our nature preschool camp follows a play-based curriculum with a focus on child-led inquiry. Teachers guide children through a variety of methods that foster creativity, self-confidence, and social and emotional skills. Our small group sizes allow teachers to provide all the ingredients for a nurturing and nature-filled experience. 

The typical school day runs from 8:30 a.m. until 11:15 a.m. We offer nature preschool camp in June and July, with occasional sessions throughout the school year. 

Please note, Nature Preschool is operating as an exempt childcare program and does not operate with a state childcare license like our school-aged camps do. All of our teachers are still background checked and do still have all of the same trainings as our licensed program. 

If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth, before we ask them to save it.
