Our purposeful play curriculum is the centerpiece of each classroom


Teachers create rich learning environments full of art, objects, activities and tools designed to ignite the imagination of children.


Children are allowed to construct their own knowledge through experimentation. Our teachers encourage students to be curious.


Teachers observe children’s interests, talents and personal challenges to design a curriculum  to meet the needs of the children.


Children form a classroom community and hone their social  and emotional skills while  forming  new relationships.

Adventure & Play

Teachers join children on adventures of exploration. Children spend hours each day engaging in outside play in our large backyard.

Reading and Writing

Teachers build literacy rich classrooms with reading and writing opportunities that are made fun through play.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide exceptional care to children while fostering each child's intellectual, social, physical, and moral development in a safe and nurturing environment. 


Wooden Fish Preschool provides children ages 2-12 years in our day program a welcoming space where their social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills are creatively nurtured through a play-based curriculum. We provide safe, stable care for families who want to encourage their children’s development in a setting that honors diversity and respects the environment in collaboration with families and the greater community. We also have an after school program that is available for youth 7-18 years with our partnering Non-Profit Wooden Fish Parents First.
