Fidalgo Nature School currently offers half-day outdoor preschool, as well as programs for caregivers to attend with their toddlers and babies.

Our teachers use an emergent curriculum philosophy to follow the interests of the class as they move through the school year together, and the Since Time Immemorial Curriculum to foster understanding of Coast Salish Peoples.

 

We are working to expand our programming for the 2021-2022 school year. As the only fully outdoor preschool in Skagit and Island Counties, we are seeking funding to double capacity, remove barriers for under-resourced families, help fulfill the local need for full-day preschool, serve meals in class, and create a gear-lending library to provide necessary outdoor clothing.
