Regularly Scheduled visits to Wolf Trap National Park and Far Away Hill

Inspired by the Forest Schools found in parts of Europe, our days in the woods entail lots of adventure, experiential learning, confidence and skill building, all the while nurturing a sense of reverence and wonder for the natural world and a deep connection to our sense of place within it.

All of our preschool students at The Eastern Ridge School experience the benefits of exploring, learning, and playing in nature’s ultimate classroom, the woods, on a regular basis. Each preschool class has two Forest Days scheduled per month at Wolf Trap National Park, which is just about 1.5 miles from our campus, as well as at least two mornings per week at Far Away Hill, the magical woodland retreat that is connected to our property.
