Tender Tracks Outdoor Preschool

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Tender Tracks Outdoor Nature Awareness Preschool. Find out more about this unique program at their informational night on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 6:30 to 8 pm.

Tender Tracks, one of the longest running Outdoor Forest Preschools in the United States, offers unique and nurturing programs. From its 100% outdoor preschool classes and summer camps for children ages 6 to the support offered to parents, Tender Tracks is devoted to honoring and respecting the inherent need for children to have ample time with nature in order to develop a healthy bond and relationship to the natural world and all who dwell therein. Stories, songs, and explorations are the backbone tools used to aid children as they go on playful adventures into the heart of Marin's natural wonderland.

Play and imagination is the cornerstone from which the teaching takes place as this is the language that is most harmonious with the child’s developing brain. And for parents, Tender Tracks offers education with regard to the developmental stages of children as well as offering tools that support and aid any parent with raising their children with peace and JOY!

One of the strongest components of Tender Tracks is its focus on Loving Presence. The staff take the time that is needed to tend to the emotional, social, physical, mental, and spiritual needs of each individual child and the group as they playfully receive the  support, guidance and wisdom from Earth and Sky.

The daily logistics: Families drop off and pick up their children at Peri Park in Fairfax. After getting settled in the magic school bus, the children begin the journey and adventure of the day by going to one of Marin’s many beautiful natural locations. Once there the children participate in morning circle with stories, songs, and snack to get ready for the adventures to be found.

Tender Tracks offers a one-day Forest preschool program for three-year-olds on Wednesdays from 9 am to 1 pm and a two-day program for the four- and almost-five-year-olds on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 2 pm.

Since 1996, Tender Tracks has provided extraordinary learning opportunities for hundreds of young children in the outdoors. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your young ones. Please contact us at and go to our website at for more information.
