Outdoor Preschool & Childcare in Hilliard, OH The preschool was set up in 2020 as an independent preschool and play care center. After 10 years working in early childhood education, I realized that a traditional preschool setting was not allowing children to grow and develop to their fullest capabilities. Children need to be outside interacting with nature. They need to climb on trees to build their sense of competency. They need to turn over rocks to find worms and bugs. They need to learn to make birch bark boats and identify tree leaves and see pods. We found a space with five acres of trees and native plants and plan to develop that in to an outdoor learning center. We will begin enrolling for the 20-21 preschool year now and offer morning class in our outdoor learning center.
