Registration for the 2023-2024 year will be available during the first week of April.

Saplings 2022-2023

The Saplings program at Fernbrook Farms is a play-based nature program for young learners ages 3-5. Sapling students will have the unique opportunity to develop meaningful connections with their peers, teachers, and the natural world while immersed in the diverse ecosystems of Fernbrook Farms.

Our Saplings program is specially designed to provide the roots that will allow children to grow and develop at their own unique pace. Each day will follow a set routine that will provide opportunities for children to participate in activities where they will be encouraged to ask questions, seek their own answers, and openly explore the world around them. 

Our Saplings program is intended to prepare kids for Kindergarten.  It is not a replacement for Kindergarten.  Students should be born after June 15, 2017 and before Sept. 6, 2019.
