• The Little Farm Preschool

    WHERE THE WILD THINGS GROW

  • A place where a child’s 
    imagination 
    can run wild

    Located on 5 beautiful acres in Maple Valley
    Just Minutes from Highway 18

    Once you drive through the gate you will enter a magical,
    park-like setting where children will love exploring,
    working in the garden and taking care of the animals.

  • "For children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."

    - Fred Rogers

    We believe that the preschool years are an enchanted time in a child’s life where imagination and creativity should be cherished.

  • We are an outdoor preschool for children from 3 to 5 years of age.

    We believe that children thrive when they are given many opportunities to go outside, get dirty and have adventures. 

    Studies have shown that simply having contact with dirt, whether it’s through gardening, digging holes, or making pies out of mud, can significantly improve a child’s mood and reduce their anxiety and stress. Who knew, right?

  • “The act of creating for young children is about the process, not the outcome.
    Children need to explore, take risks, make their own choices. This is the richness of creativity.
    This is the groundwork for future problem solvers.”

    – Meri Cherry

    • “They reinforce creativity, and for children to discover learning at their own pace. They take all parts of the child into consideration when teaching social and academic skills. My wild boy needs time to explore and play outside just as much as he needs time inside to work his brain, and The Little Farm makes a priority of it all! I am so happy that my two younger boys will be coming through this school as well. We feel so grateful for our teachers and the time and effort they put into these kids, it truly shows. I feel very confident in sending my child to kindergarten with the experience he has leaving The Little Farm!”

    • My son is very shy at first and does not like change so going to preschool was a challenge but he absolutely loves the Little Farm and his teachers. I like that he is getting a well rounded start to his education and not just sitting at a desk. Also, who wouldn’t want to go to a school that has ponies!”

    • The location of the school could not be anything more than perfect. My son has come such a long way in his first year of Preschool and it is all thanks to these lovely teachers. He has a great appreciation for the outdoors, animals, toys, and friendships and most importantly learning.”

    • We just love the little farm! We have had my son at the little farm for 2 years, and just adore it. The teachers are amazing, my son gets to play and be a boy, and he gets a great education. Miss Margo and Miss Chrissy (a mother daughter team) have been a huge part of his life, and work hard to help him improve where needs to, and he is also able to thrive where he is strongest. The school is on a few acres of property, so the kids have plenty of room to play, run and explore, with lots of grass, an orchard, sand boxes, and the most exciting part is they have 2 mini horses.”
