Firs & Fiddleheads Preschool

Firs & Fiddleheads offers Outdoor Preschool from September through June for children ages 3-5 years old and potty-trained.

Classes offered include morning only or morning/afternoon. 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.
