The Fawn Lily Kindergarten is located on a small farm, just outside of Cottage Grove 25-30 min South of Eugene), The Fawn Lily is an outdoor program, designed to supplement other more traditional Early Childhood programs. The vast majority of our time is spent exploring the forest, meadow, creek and farm surrounding the farmhouse. Each day is set to follow a consistent rhythm that helps to keep the children feeling safe and secure.
Nature’s Mystery Farm & Forest Kindergarten programs are based on the time-tested and highly successful European models of outdoor education, which stem from indigenous place-based models from around the world. Outdoor Kindergartens have long demonstrated (and more recently documented) the positive correlation between regular exposure to prolonged outdoor exploration and enhanced cognitive development, balanced emotional states, physical health, improved concentration, as well as a general sense of well-being.
