Dodge Nature Preschool

Situated on a 110-acre area of our Environmental Educational Preserve, the Dodge Nature Preschool brings the natural world into the lives of young children. With their teachers and classmates, children discover the wonders of nature and play on the Model Farm where barnyard animals provide stimulating opportunities for learning and growth. Programs on beekeeping, honey making, maple syruping - as well as tasting apples picked right off the tree - encourage children to explore how their lives are part of the world of nature. The Dodge Nature Preschool uses the inherent wonder, complexity and beauty of the natural world as a catalyst for a child's growth and development.

Dodge Nature Preschool serves 3 – 5 year old children. We offer part-day classes for preschoolers.  Families choose mornings or afternoons, two, three or five days per week.  

All classes for the 2018-19 school year are filled. We maintain a wait list for students who are interested. Please submit an application to be placed on the wait list.
