Fledglings & Tadpoles Nature-Based Learning

At Prescott Farm, we know the learning that happens during the preschool years is crucial to the development of the mind, body, and sense of self. Science has shown that being immersed in nature from a young age yields huge benefits in long-term development.


Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool: Learning through Nature

Fully licensed in New Hampshire, Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool uses the Prescott Farm property as the backdrop for introducing social skills, fine and gross motor skills, reading and writing readiness, and other foundational learning to students. Through the fields and the forests, our experienced Fledglings staff facilitate exploration and activities that encourage students ages 3-5 years old to become life-long learners, creating meaningful connections to nature, the self and others. All children must be independent with toileting. 

Tadpoles: Small Group, Nature-Based Learning

Tadpoles is led by a certified nature-based teacher and provides the opportunity for young children to learn about the natural world while engaging in a small group setting. The day begins and ends at the barn, and children will spend most of their day outside. Explorations will occur in the gardens, fields and natural-playscape at Prescott Farm. Teacher/ child ratio is 1:6. A minimum age requirement of 2 years 9 months is required for this program. All children must be independent with toileting. 

Tadpoles runs in 6 week sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:15-11:15 am.
