Wild Haven Forest Immersion Programs for Young Children

Join us at the Gwynns Falls-Leakin Park where your little one’s classroom will be the forest! Far more engaging and enriching than typical indoor preschool age program, our learning is active, joyful, and fun! Taking inspiration from European waldkitas, waldkindergartens, and forest schools, weekly classes encourage children to explore nature, make friends, and engage in imaginative outdoor play. The language-rich natural environment abounds with opportunities for storytelling, artistic expression, math ideas, engineering, construction with loose parts, science concepts, and more. Young children can shape their own learning with the guidance of compassionate, well-trained teachers who understand the power of emergent outdoor curriculum. We also encourage family involvement and offer Wild Haven community events throughout the year. Join us and grow wild in Baltimore’s largest urban park!
