Firs & Fiddleheads offers Outdoor Preschool from September through June for children ages 3-5 years old and potty-trained.
Classes offered include morning only (Fawn class) or morning/afternoon (Fiddlehead class). Both Fawn and Fiddlehead classes have 2, 3 or 5-day options. All of our teachings are based in faith and play, with our morning session heavily focused on ever-changing child-led topics. Our afternoon session includes lunch, a quiet/rest time, and forest exploration. We highly recommend the morning/afternoon combo for parents looking to acclimatize their children to all-day school before heading to a more traditional classroom setting.
Because our preschool is located in a setting with no walls, we keep a very low ratio of 1 staff member to every 6 kids.
The preschool calendar will loosely follow the Bellingham School District Calendar for holidays and school closures; see our School Calendar for our accurate school year schedule.

PRESCHOOL CARE during COVID
We deeply care about the health and wellness of everyone, and to assure we are taking necessary precautions, the following procedures are in place…

Adults and children wash and sanitize hands upon arrival and throughout the day
Facility & Equipment Sanitizing
Our dedicated staff is putting extensive effort into sanitizing and disinfecting our center, all touchable surfaces and toys each night.
Space for Small Groups
Space for small group sizes and lots of time to grow, learn and discover among our towering Fir Trees and Fern gardens.
