ITHACA FOREST PRESCHOOL NOW ENROLLING
What we do at Ithaca Forest Preschool looks and feels like play most of the time, but our caring and skilled mentors are subtly weaving in peacemaking, community-building, and a deep respect and love for the earth. Spontaneous play, cooperative problem-solving, feeling comfortable in nature, empathy for other living things and moments of wonder and delight.
Ithaca Forest Preschool runs at our beloved Trillium Camp at 4-H Acres. Children are eligible to enroll if they will be three by September 1st and will not reach the age of six before January 1st.
