Welcome to our wooded world...
We invite children from birth through age 5 to join us with a parent or adult care-giver for spontaneous play, exploration, and moments of wonder in the woods on selected mornings during the year.
Forest Play Days are a great way to have a look into whether a forest preschool might be right for your family! Get out into the woods and experience total nature immersion.
Parents and children birth to age five are invited to join the Ithaca Forest Preschool for a day of stories, stalking, wild tea making & sipping and more as we find our place in the woods at our beloved Trillium Camp at 4-H Acres. Bring water and snacks; there may be opportunities to cook on the fire!
Sliding scale $5-20 per child, advance registration required.
Opening Circle 9:00AM - Closing 12:00PM
- Fall: November 12th (Veterans Day)
- Winter: January 21st (MLK Day)
- Spring: TBD
* These programs often run on the same dates and location as our School Break Days for ages 6-12, so older children are invited to attend that program.
