Anna's Little Farm
Anna's Little Farm Preschool has been offering children (ages 2.5 - 6) an enriching outdoor environment for the past 10 years! 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.
Two days each week, the older kids who show they are ready get to explore Seward Park for the day! Forest Day involves hikes in the park, swimming in Lake Washington, bird watching, nature ID, building shelters, and much more.
