Wren's Nest Forest Preschool Seeks New Location
The Wren’s Nest Forest Preschool is looking for a new home. We need YOUR help finding our new forever home! Forest preschool is an emerging form of early childhood education for ages three to five. Held almost exclusively outdoors through varying weather, students are encouraged to play, explore, and learn in a forest environment. The adult supervision is meant to assist rather than lead.
Due to unforeseen circumstances related to Covid-19, The Wren’s Nest Forest Preschool is moving from its current location at Treleven Farm in New Haven. In our current location we are renting a former residence with access to 75+ acres of land. In our future location we may be interested in purchasing land, or a structure, or entering into a long-term rental agreement.
This unique, outdoor, licensed pre-k program is looking for a large piece of diverse land with a heated building and ample parking (or the ability to create more parking). Due to our state licensing requirements we must have running water, electricity, and septic or sewer capacity for up to 25 extra people a day. We are looking to purchase or rent a property in the Middlebury, Cornwall, Weybridge, New Haven, Bristol area, and we are hoping to find this new location by December 2020.
Our dream property is one with open fields, forests, rocky outcroppings, and streams to splash and play in.
We’re open to many ideas and suggestions. Please spread the word and let us know if you have ideas.
