Opening Fall 2022!

What could be more magical than a preschool where each child's innate connection to nature is celebrated? Through hands-on activities, exploration, movement, and play, Mass Audubon's nature preschools support children's curiosity and wonder by using our wildlife sanctuaries as outdoor classrooms. Give your child a fun, unique, and adventurous learning experience that will last a lifetime. 

Beginning fall 2022, Stony Brook Nature Preschool will be accepting 15–18 children ages 3–5 per day.

Preschool Hours

Monday–Thursday: 8:30 am–3:30 pm 
Friday: 8:30 am–1:00 pm

We offer 5-day (Monday–Friday), 3-day (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), and 2-day (Tuesday/Thursday) options for students.
