Hey all! My name is Davis; I'm a new community member here. After years of working with children, I recently opened a new outdoor preschool in the area. During coronavirus I realized that so many children were stuck indoors without the ability to engage with the world, have adventures, or play with other children. Outdoor schools do all three of those things. As a mentor, it breaks my heart that many children are being waitlisted for outdoor preschools, because I feel they are so important. So I created my own preschool, so that I could bring a few more children into the forest to play, and to connect with the more than human world.

Below is is the website. We've got a few more spots open right now!
