Fall 2020 Slideshow

Dear Ithaca Forest Preschool Families, 

Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us this Fall! We had an amazing time learning, laughing and exploring together. Here are a few images and videos to give you a glimpse into what a day at preschool is like. Wishing you a happy, healthy and safe holiday break and we look forward to seeing you in January! 

With gratitude, 

the Ithaca Forest Preschool Team

What Parents are Saying...

“Ithaca Forest Preschool prepared our sons to really appreciate nature, to pay attention to details we may not notice nor know anything about, and to love winter; to this day, they sprint outside to play in the cold!”

What Parents are Saying...

“Ithaca Forest Preschool is a place where your children will learn lots of things you may not know yourself, which they love to come home and share with you.” 

L.C., Ithaca Forest Preschool parent

What Parents are Saying...

“My daughter is now in 4th grade, and my sons are in 2nd Grade and Kindergarten. I can honestly say that I feel they entered Kindergarten completely prepared and that they had something extra to bring to the classroom, an experience beyond what one would expect of a preschooler because they also brought with them unique life skills and stories from their time in the forest.”

G. K., Ithaca Forest Preschool parent
