The Little Nest 



A unique opportunity for your little one: a drop off class in an outdoor classroom led by a mama passionate about gentle/respectful parenting & introducing children to nature. For those who are homeschooled or haven't yet begun daycare/school, this is the perfect way to ease a child into independently participating in a group. We have a daily theme that our books and activities are based on, lots of opportunity for free play & exploring, and most importantly- we follow the lead of the child. Will have a helper on deck whenever there are more than 6 children total on a day. See our daily schedule below.
