Program Overview

Our popular year-round forest program gets children playing outdoors and learning in the fall, spring, and winter months. Children enjoy “living and breathing” stories, diving deep into their imaginations, engineering in grand-scale play experiences, and so much more! They’ll also get plenty of time to cook over an open fire and play for hours on end. Programs may vary based on location.

Children will learn using stories, games, seasonal experiences, and the natural environment. The TimberNook curriculum weaves together the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors with a thorough understanding of child development. The result is a sensory play experience that supports every aspect of the growing child. Each week we will have a play-based experience focusing on a component of the seasonal theme. We will also explore the natural world around us, engage our senses, and have time every day for deep, authentic play.

Our site offers opportunities for individual and group play amidst a beautiful wooded area equipped with rope swings, materials for building and plenty of room to run. We make every effort to accommodate any child who wishes to attend our program.

  • This program is offered one or two days a week and runs in 6-week sessions.
  • TimberNook is a 100% outdoor program and we love to play in the rain (emergency shelter available for lightning). Weather appropriate attire for rain and snow is required and essential.  We ask that each child is equipped with insulated rain boots.
