Outdoor Preschool Age Programs

Early Childhood With WYP

Meet our two outdoor preschool programs for early childhood: Woolly Bears & Chickadees

Woolly Bears and Chickadees are outdoor preschool programs in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria. Children connect with nature through play, curiosity and awareness. Developmentally appropriate routines include gratitude circles, games, and songs— all mirroring the patterns of surrounding nature.

By experiencing seasonal transitions outdoors, children have the opportunity to cultivate a heightened awareness of the subtleties of nature. They direct their own learning by investigating curiosity and ultimately can experience a deep sense of place. These opportunities for growth provide a foundation for physical, emotional, and social intelligence that lasts a lifetime.
