PM Saplings: Ages 3 to 5
Mondays through Thursdays, 12:45 pm - 3:15 pm

Children are born naturalists who explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them. Our 40-acre Woodend Nature Sanctuary serves as a natural venue for language, artistic, and musical expression as well as scientific observations and discoveries.

Our preschool teachers plan age-appropriate activities that integrate science, math, literacy, and the arts while encouraging cooperative learning and social competence. Your child's inherent curiosity about the world is supported by hands-on, nature-based activities which foster empathy, resiliency, and confidence. There is so much joy to experience every day…naturally!
