"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning."

Playground

Little Forest Playschool is fortunate to sit on a two-acre lot that has plenty of tall ponderosa pines, providing shade and a sense of forest play. Within our property, there are several different age-appropriate playgrounds as well as a paved area for riding bikes. The natural hills that exist on our grounds encourage outdoor play where developmentally appropriate risk can be taken to encourage gross motor skill development, confidence, and social interactions.
