Outdoor Preschool

Outdoor Preschool Programming at Boise Urban Garden School and Foothills Learning Center

An outdoor preschool is a place for children to learn in an outdoor environment through exploration and play. Through this creative learning environment, children are also preparing for kindergarten.

Children who learn in this environment are taught a special love and respect for nature and their surroundings. There are more opportunities to explore by listening, looking, smelling, and touching while also using their imagination in a play-based learning environment.

Preschoolers will explore the surrounding ecosystem, learn through a STEM based curriculum, and develop cognitive, motor, and emotional skills.

Preschool tours are available by request. Simply email or call to set up a tour. For the Foothills location, email or call 208-493-2530; for the Garden location, email or call 208-972-8630.
