Anna's Little Farm
Anna's Little Farm Preschool has been offering children (ages 2.5 - 6) an enriching outdoor environment for over a decade! This is a place for children to learn about themselves and their world. We are here to help guide children along this path, using an approach that combines emotion coaching, communication skills building, and encouraging resiliency.
We emphasize the development of autonomy, critical thinking skills, decision making, and attention span. Children decide if they want to join in on structured activities (crafts, art, circle time, etc.) or if they want to dive deep into play. We encourage children to communicate their feelings, wants, and needs to their classmates and teachers. As teachers, we are here to help students navigate social interactions and to support them as they make their own decisions, learn from mistakes, and grow into empathetic and self aware individuals.
At the farm, we have so many fun places for children to explore. Our large yard gives kids space to run and explore, play in the mud, climb trees, and be kids! The deck is our main gathering space where we like to make art, craft, and just hang out. The yurt is a great place to warm up on a cold rainy day, and the cabin is a wonderful place to dress up and get imaginative.

Adults will wear masks at all times unless they are more than 10 ft away from any children.
Pick-up and drop-off are at the curb, where adults will maintain strict social distancing. No groups of adults will gather at preschool at this time.
Children over five will wear masks when playing closely with other children. We do not feel it is developmentally appropriate for children five and under to wear masks unless this becomes indicated by research. Currently young children are low risk for transmitting the virus to children and adults.
Children's hands will be sanitized upon arrival and before eating.
We are committed to staying current on research about COVID-19 and updating our policies as necessary. We are making every effort to balance safety with children's developmental needs.
