Forest Preschool

Busy Beavers is Beaver Brook’s Forest Program for 4-6 year old.  Busy Beaver is not a traditional child care program. Instead it is a program which is focused on nature.  Busy Beavers will spend 100% of the class time in the great outdoors!

Mission Statement

By providing preschoolers the opportunity to learn in a rich natural environment, our mission is to help children grow in emotional, physical and social resilience in order to develop families who are strong environmental stewards.

Busy Beavers is not a full time licensed child care facility.  Busy Beavers is an occasional care program.  Class will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning September 2021 from 8:30-11:30.
