2nd Annual Raise Heck Tug O'War

Help Launch our Fledglings preschoolers into a lifetime of success through the Fledglings Scholarship Fund! #WatchUsSoar

Join our 2nd Annual Raise Heck Tug O'War - We are raising money for the Fledglings Scholarship Fund!

Did you know that children today spend half as much time out of doors than we did as kids? Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool helps children connect to nature and become a life-long learner, and lover of our environment.

Join us today in supporting this amazing cause! Will you help our Fledglings SOAR?!?

Help us raise $11,364 for the Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool Scholarship Fund to cover 100% of the requested aid for our 2018-2019 class of local 3-5-year-old learners.

Fledglings Nature-Based preschool is a fully licensed educational program. We do our best to meet each family where they are - providing financial assistance to families in need while requiring each family to pay at least a portion of their child’s tuition. In one class this year, fully one-third of the students received some level of assistance from the Fledglings Preschool Scholarship Fund.

$11,364 in scholarship funds have been requested by our 2018-2019 Fledglings class.

 Kristina's Story...

We signed our daughter up for preschool mainly with the intention of simply allowing her to have time away from home where she can further expand her social skills and basic kindergarten readiness. We knew we didn't want a ‘traditional’ preschool and happened to stumble upon Fledglings. From the moment we went to an open house, we (and more importantly she) LOVED the feel of Fledglings, the teachers, and just the overall concept...

She began the following fall as a timid 3-year old but very quickly she made herself at home. Fast forward to now, she's a newly 5-year-old who has amazing social skills, constantly sings songs and fun poems from school, teaches us about types of trees and birds when out on walks, writes all her letters and numbers, and is even beginning to read!! We knew Fledglings would be great but it is so much more than we could have hoped for. We're sad as her time in preschool comes to an end but look forward to seeing all the skills learned here put to use well into the future.”

Thanks,  Kristina (mother of Fledglings student, Lilyanna)

Your Support allows us to help more children build connections with nature.

Have you ever seen a child build a fort out of sticks and branches!? Or discover that carrots GROW in the ground?! Have you watched your own children or grandchildren explore ice - the way it fractures and cracks, or how slippery it is! These moments of DISCOVERY are what Prescott Farm and our Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool are all about!

Children learn best through play and learn more when they are interested in the topics at hand. Everything is interesting when it’s connected to the places you have walked, sights you have seen and things you have smelled! When children have the opportunity to use the great outdoors for their exploration, it stimulates the imagination, fosters a sense of belonging, and helps young children become better problem solvers, engineers, artists, and future inventors.
