Back to Nature

Kids at Play is a child-led, place-based learning environment for children ages six weeks through first grade.

We focus on each child’s individual journey, rather than reaching a destination — allowing time and space in a living environment that is dynamic, forming, evolving and encourages real-life interactions.


What We Offer


12 Months to 4 Years

Unique and affordable opportunities for extensive outdoor play and learning, promoting whole child development.


VPK Program

Promoting a love of learning and nature, while helping the child become the best version of themselves. Because of the many benefits of learning from nature, outdoor visits will be offered as often as possible.



Winter, spring, and summer camps for school-age children. Camps are a great time to connect, form memorable relationships, and one of a kind experiences.
