Fostering exploration, play, and a lifelong love of learning in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Our Mission

Our mission is to meet the needs of a diverse community by providing a safe, play-centered cooperative preschool where parents, guardians, and children learn and grow together. 



With plenty of time for unstructured play, children learn immeasurable micro-skills such as socialization, communication, cooperation, and self-advocacy.



Space to explore and room to run and play. Our forest environment allows kids room to explore the natural world and become stewards of the land. 



We use the natural world to create, learn, and grow. Children are encouraged to make art using traditional art supplies and materials as well as natural, found objects.
