Program Overview

Our popular forest program that gets children playing outdoors and learning in the fall, spring, summer 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. Learning has never been more exciting! Programs may vary based on location.

This year-round program is open to children ages 4-7 yrs (with some flexibility, please contact us with questions).

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 water play. We make every effort to accommodate any child who wishes to attend our program. We will provide an essential-oil based insect/tick spray if desired.

  • This program offers one or two days options and runs in 8-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 can offer suggestions for good quality rain gear. We ask that each child is equipped with insulated rain boots.
  • A change of clothes, an extra pair of close toed shoes and towel recommended. Please expect kids to come home dirty!
  • Children will need a snack and bagged lunch each day and refillable water bottle.
  • Staff is first aid/CPR trained and background checked.
