Woodland Wonders Nature Preschool



Classes meet every day of the week. Families can choose to enroll their child in either two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays), three days per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays), or five days per week (Monday-Friday). Beginning in 2022-2023, classes will meet from 9:00am to 1:00pm with optional drop off beginning at 8:00am and an optional afternoon session from 1:00pm-5:00pm. Our school year begins August 15, 2022 and ends May 19, 2023.


Woodland Wonders Nature Preschool is open to children ages 3 to 5 (age as of September 1). If your child falls outside this range, please contact us at natureeducation@auburn.edu and we can discuss individual exceptions. Children must be potty-trained by the beginning of classes.  We welcome children from all backgrounds and cultures and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, disability, or age. Woodland Wonders will accept up to 24 students in each class with a teacher-ratio of 1 teacher per 6 students.
