Little Swans Pre-School

Little Swans is a nurturing, nature-inspired pre-school and early learning program for children ages 3-5. We are now accepting applications for the 2023-24 school year. For more information, please inquire. You are also warmly invited to apply online.

Our Mission

To provide a high-quality early childhood experience for children ages 3-5 and their families by connecting children to the natural environment, nurturing the positive qualities within each child and planting the seeds of life-long learning.


At Little Swans we believe that play is the most important tool for young children to explore and think about the complex world in which they live. Play in the context of a developmentally appropriate curriculum inspires their innate curiosity, helps them develop social skills, gain confidence, expand thinking skills and develop an appreciation for beauty and the creative process. We value diversity and promote individuality and development of character.

Our program offers:

  • a balance of individual and group activities that focus on the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of each child
  • a consistent, predictable and safe community where children can form trusting relationships with their teachers and classmates
  • spacious, light-filled classrooms surrounded by 200 acres of woods, fields, trails and a natural playscape
  • an environment rich in print and language, mathematics, critical thinking and children’s relationship to the natural world
  • opportunities for enriching interactions with the K-8 program for learning and play
  • collaboration between teachers, children and their families that fosters respectful communication and understanding
  • teachers and staff who embody an attitude of appreciation and respect towards the children and one another.
