the project

Little Schoolhouse in the Woods is a natural, nurturing Outdoor Education Program serving preschool age children, in the outdoor environment of Mt. Airy Forest in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Ms. Lee and Mr. Jay provide a wholesome environment with plenty of healthy play in a beautiful setting. This is an exceptional program for early childhood. If interested please contact them at

Our goal is to provide children with access to a beautiful, natural play space and a warm, caring environment. We support independence, positive self-esteem, and social emotional skills while allowing them to unfold in a developmentally appropriate manner. We are working hard to expand our enrollment and in order to earn a type b childcare license we need to update our driveway and parking lot infrastructure. This is a huge cost for our little organization and we are grateful for your help!

the steps

Once the donations have been received in August we will work with the contractor to set up an installation date. Then we will host a community event in November to celebrate the hard work of the children, parents, board members and donors as we enjoy the new infrastructure and lastly we will finalize our application to become a type b childcare center and welcome new students into our program.

why we're doing it

It is our belief that children are naturally curious and eager to learn about themselves and the world around them. They are able to communicate their needs and desires. They can  ask questions, explore and find answers. Children learn best when they are interested and engaged while accompanied by warm, stable and caring educators and caretakers. We believe children have the right to an education that fosters respect for nature and each other.
