The Cross Timbers Forest Preschool is an explorative, hands-on preschool experience focusing on connecting students to nature. The curriculum is centered on our local ecosystem and includes hikes, storytime, arts and crafts, imaginative play, and discovery. Forest Preschool allows students to build knowledge of the world around them and develop confidence and self-esteem while inspiring connections with nature.
The Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve is not only a fantastic home for wildlife but a wonderful outdoor classroom. Over 80% of every Forest Preschool day is spent outside learning through exploration. With over 700 acres of preserve, each day is guaranteed to lead to exciting discoveries and opportunities for a deeper connection with nature. Our 6:1 student to teacher ratio allows for safe and confident exploration.
