An all-outdoor forest preschool program for children ages 3-4 that invites young learners to grow and thrive in the natural world.


Our simple daily rhythm includes stories, songs, and outdoor adventures at Maple Valley’s beautiful Arboretum, with plenty of time to explore and discover the wonders of nature with friends. Our Mentors support holistic development by celebrating creativity, curiosity, and self expression as children learn about the connections between themselves and the animals, plants, and seasons. Children will also have the opportunity to explore garden-to-table concepts and fresh foods as part of their curriculum. Please pack a snack. 


Wilderness Whimsy helps children grow in many ways: 

● Physically: by strengthening their immune system, sensory awareness, and motor skills through outdoor activities and challenges. 

● Emotionally: by fostering their self-confidence, resilience, and empathy through nature connection and peer interaction.

● Socially: by enhancing their communication, cooperation, and leadership skills through group projects and games. 

● Cognitively: by stimulating their imagination, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills through nature observation and inquiry. 

● Creatively: by encouraging their expression, innovation, and artistry through nature crafts and stories. 


Wilderness Whimsy is more than just a preschool, it’s a magical adventure that will inspire your child to love and respect nature, themselves, and others. Come and see how Wilderness Whimsy can enrich your child’s life!
