Early Ecology

"Children are born with a sense of wonder and an affinity for Nature.  Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living."

-Zenobia Barlow

Extended Day Options

Extended Care (EC)

For our currently enrolled Forest School families only.

As our morning programs are fairly structured our EC time is intentionally a free flowing playtime.

Newly enrolling bunny students are encouraged to begin the year with 12:30 pick-up as school can be very tiring for little ones in the beginning. Cost is as follows

1 day/week- add $125/month

2 days/week-add $225/month

3 days/week- add $325/month

4 days/week-add $425/month

El Nido Spanish Language Program

The intention is to keep providing high quality early education while introducing the Spanish Language through songs, rhymes, movement, games, crafts, storytelling and role playing. Our vision is also to widen the community and bring back the culture through music, food, and traditions from other Spanish speaking countries. We aim to instil the values of care, respect, and love for the Earth, gratitude, generosity, kindness, courage and self care.

There are many reasons why to start learning a second language at early age, one of them is that children who actually start before the age of 5 use the same part of the brain that they use to acquire their mother tongue, and another one is that most of them are not afraid to make mistakes! However, language will be introduced through different stages and we will use as much English as children need to feel comfortable and included. 


Most families participating in El Nido sign their children up for EC which flows directly into El Nido, other students may attend just El Nido. El Nido is available to currently enrolled or Forest School alumni ages 3 and up. Cost is as follows.
