Pathfinders forest preschool program is for children 3 to 5 years old. Students in the program participate in play-based learning, exploration, and self-discovery. Songs, stories, and creative approaches are paired with social-emotional learning to promote a sense of belonging in nature and connections with fellow students.
The program is held Mondays through Fridays from 8:45am to 1:15pm.
Children may be enrolled Tuesday/Thursday in Song Sparrows or Monday/Wednesday/Friday in Water Striders. A few spots are open to attend 5 days a week, mostly for 2nd year students.
The Magic Forest in Palo Alto is our drop-off and pickup location. Students ride from there in our Honda minivans to local nature preserves.
