Cross Timbers Forest Preschool

Young child smiling holding bagThe award-winning Cross Timbers Forest Preschool program 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 70% 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. 

The spring 2023 semester begins January 17 and ends May 5. Forest Preschool meets from 9am-12pm for 15 weeks. Classes are offered Tuesday-Friday for the weekday(s) of your choice. Registration is for one day per week. To allow more students to participate, there is a maximum enrollment of two week days per semester. 

Forest Preschool does not meet the week of Spring Break (March 13-17). Forest Preschool Spring Break Drop-In classes are available Monday-Friday from 9am-12pm during Spring Break. Additional registration required.
