Forest Preschool

Our Forest Preschool programs are nature immersion and set by nature’s cycles. We draw themes and inspiration for our activities from what we observe around us in the natural world—what we can see, touch, feel, hear and experience. We aim for your child to awaken their senses, learn through moving and doing, and connect with themselves, others and the natural world!

Les Arterres’ approach weaves creative arts and nature immersion to offer a safe space for kids to explore, play to learn, and express themselves as they discover who they are and the world around them. We draw inspiration from Waldorf pedagogy, Creative Arts Education, Place-based Education and Coyote Mentoring.

Gift your child, a day of forest adventures & creative arts in a rich and nurturing environment!
