Classes meet either 3-days per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) or 2-days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays), both from 8 to 11:30 AM with drop off beginning at 7:45 AM.

Woodland Wonders Nature Preschool is open to children ages 3 to 5 (age as of September 1). Children must by 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. For the 2020/2021 school year we will have two classes, one 3-day/week class (MWF) and one 2-day/week class (TR). Woodland Wonders will accept up to 18 students in each class. If you are interested in attending all five days of the week, please contact us at natureeducation@auburn.edu to discuss this option for your child.


Step 1: Register


Registration for the 2020/21 school year begins February 3, 2020. Register as soon as possible because space is limited! Registration requires a $50.00, non-refundable deposit. For convenience, you will have the option of paying for tuition and supplies at this time, but these fees are not required until the first day of class (August 17, 2020).

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).
