On Saturday, February 8th from 10:30 -12:30, families are invited to play, learn, meet the teachers, and tour our facility.
Our play and nature-based preschool in rural NW Portland currently has openings for children ages 3-5. Wildwood Nature School is close to Forest Park, Bethany, St. Johns, and Sauvie Island but provides gardens animal care, 4 acres of open and forested land, and a calm, peaceful atmosphere that seems miles away from city bustle.
We are a state registered preschool, with highly qualified staff offering:
- Play-based interdisciplinary curriculum to develop the whole child in art, science, language, literacy, emotional growth, math, and movement.
- Outdoor gardening, animal care, and hiking on 11 rural acres abutting the Wildwood Trail.
- Indoor environment inspired by child-focused methods of Waldorf, Montessori, and the schools of Reggio Emilia.
- Knowledgeable and caring teachers with over 15 years experience in Early Childhood and Museum Education, Master’s degree in education, and bilingual in Spanish and English.
- Multiage setting where children learn from and about each other while following their own interests at their own pace.
- Flexible scheduling options include classes that meet 2, 3, or 5 days per week.
We spend half of each day outside, rain or shine, and combine experiential learning with more traditional preschool academics.
