“Nature—the sublime, the harsh, and the beautiful—offers something that the street or gated community or computer game cannot. Nature presents the young with something so much greater than they are; it offers an environment where they can easily contemplate infinity and eternity.”  -Richard Louv

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. 

Warmly,

Nicole
