Nettlewood Playgarden is focused on nurturing and protecting the young child’s sense of wonder and imagination.  Play is the work of childhood and our environment is carefully prepared for the developmental needs of the young child. Through play, each child learns a broad range of cognitive, social and linguistic skills.

Daily and weekly rhythms provide a familiar environment and support children as they move wholeheartedly into play and learning.

Our classroom is warm, inviting and intentionally filled with beautiful and natural elements including pieces of wood, seashells, beeswax for modeling and handcrafted dolls and toys to encourage children to create, imagine and wonder.

Children enrolled at Nettlewood will experience a day rich in storytelling, puppetry, song, poetry, cooking and artistic activities. Crafts, handwork, games and regular outdoor play encourage the healthy growth of the child’s body.

Nettlewood Playgarden will offer a  3 day mixed aged program for children ages 3-6.

Classes will meet Monday through Wednesday beginning at 9:00 am and ending at 1:00 pm. 



* extended care is offered from 1-4.
