Welcome to Austin Woodland School

Austin Woodland School is a home based, Reggio-inspired preschool serving children 3 1/2 – 5 years old.   Nestled in the heart of the historic Travis Heights neighborhood, we are fortunate to have easy access to over 10 nearby nature preserves and wilderness areas.  Frequent visits to these wild areas are woven into our daily curriculum and are what makes our school so unique.  In addition to a rich, self-guided curriculum and inspiring classroom environment, children enjoy the opportunity to spend hours of uninterrupted time soaking up, exploring and discovering the natural world around them.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update, March 2021:

Dear Prospective Parents and Caregivers,

Woodland Schoolhouse reopened entirely outdoors as of September 2020. We’ve always been a small, “mostly outdoor” school so, fortunately, this has been a natural and minimal shift for us. We are taking COVID precautions very seriously and have implemented many new routines and policies designed to keep our environment as safe as possible while open.

I’m deeply thankful for the opportunity to offer a joyful, outdoor environment where your child can grow and thrive with a small, consistent group of friends this year. Our class is now full for the 2021-22 school year, but I invite you to fill out our waitlist form so I may reach out if we have an unexpected opening.
