This exciting opportunity is open to children who are ready for pre-school and who are potty trained or on their way to being potty trained - usually between the ages of 2&1/2 to 5.
This is an 'all outdoor' preschool with limited shelter at the parks; children need to be prepared to be outside
all day in all kinds of weather.
It is important to make sure that this non-traditional pre-school model
works for your family. Please contact KEEN with any questions.

Washington Outdoor School's approach to outdoor education is child-interest led with an emphasis on experiencing each day in the moment, noticing changes and building on previous experiences. The natural world offers up our curriculum for the day. Washington Outdoor School is about exploration, play and experiencing what the world has to offer so as to cultivate an attitude of joy and wonder within each child. Natural experiences might be infused with a relevant book or song or time spent learning about the things the children find interesting over a period of time...but whatever we explore has to be of interest to the children and organic to their experience. Our goal is for kids to love being outside and feel inspired to explore as they move through the space.
