Audubon Nature Preschool is closed for the 2020-2021 school year due to the COVID-19 crisis.
ANS’s 40-acre Woodend Nature Sanctuary provides a unique home for our preschoolers and their families. This natural environment serves as a one-of-a-kind green venue for creative language, artistic, musical expression, hands-on observation, and discovery.

Sprouts: Ages 2-3 with a caregiver
This 2-hour program offers an opportunity for a small group of two and three-year-olds to explore our nature sanctuary with their favorite adult and one of our nature school teachers. The class offers a balance of outdoor and indoor activities to give you a “preview” of our drop-off preschool classes. Classes meet every Friday, and each student attends class with a parent or caregiver.
Applicants need to be 2 years of age by September 1.
Fridays 9:30 – 11:30 am
Class size: 12
Acorns: Ages 4 & under with a caregiver
This 90-minute program is held entirely outdoors on sanctuary grounds and is designed to foster shared nature discovery for you and your children ages 4 & under. Classes meet every Thursday during the school year and take place entirely outdoors on our 40-acre nature sanctuary (or in our historic mansion in cases of inclement weather.) Younger siblings under 1 year of age are welcome to join at no additional cost. 50% sibling discounts are offered for families enrolling more than one child.
