Our Explorers

A Wilder Harmony girls and boys range from 3 to 5 years of age.

They are potty trained and are no longer taking morning naps. 

Some have experienced daycare or preschool while others are new to being away from their parents. 


AWH kids enjoy being outdoors, which is important because our classroom is the forest!


Our class size is minimum of 7 and maximum of 9. Our two teachers are able to give plenty of individualized attention and care to each and every child.
