Woodland Wonders Nature Preschool’s 2020/21 school year ends May 14th. The 2021/22 school year begins August 16, 2021 and ends May 13, 2022. Classes meet either two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays), three days per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays), or five days per week (Monday-Friday) , each from 8:00am to 11:30am with drop off beginning at 7:45am. We’ll try to work with you if you need an extension on your drop-off and/or pickup time – just let us know.


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 18 students in each class.


Step 1: Register


Registration for the 2021/22 school year is now open. Register as soon as possible because space is limited! Registration requires a $50.00, non-refundable deposit. Tuition and supplies fees are not required until the first day of class (August 16, 2021).

Step 2: Complete Required Forms



All forms required by Auburn University policy as well as state and federal regulations must be completed. We’ve simplified these forms into a single process using the link above.

Before completing the required forms, you must read and understand the Parent Handbook.

Step 3: Meet & Greet

Sarah Crim, Woodland Wonders’ lead instructor, will contact you after you register. We will arrange a time for you to meet us and tour the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center. We meet with every family individually, to ensure you have all of your questions answered and so that we have everything we need to provide the best, possible, education for your child(ren).

Step 4: Tuition & Fees


Before class begins, you are required to submit payment for the first month’s tuition and supplies.
