Little Earth Iowa Forest Preschool is a multi-age educational program that focuses on whole child development.
Our belief is that unstructured yet intentional time in nature allows children to develop the breath of cognitive, physical and social abilities essential to create, strong, capable humans.
At Little Earth Iowa children are allowed to learn in an open-ended environment that rewards creativity, diverse abilities, and mimic the challenges of the real world.
Our days are spent in nature and from nature we learn. We build habitats, we follow tracks, we craft in nature, we learn about the cycles of nature and life, we learn about food, we develop fine motor skills prepping our food, we sew, we read, we ride, we farm, we make friends.
Children learn focus, discipline, community engagement, conservation, empathy
and a deep sense of self through multi-age peer-to-peer interaction, Nature Education, Regenerative Agriculture, Foraging, Free Play, Cooking, Crafting, Knitting, Dance, Music, StoryTelling and so much more.
