The Butterfly Garden is a nature-based program turning education inside out(side) and thinking and playing outside the box (or building)!  We operate on the belief that creativity, nature, and play are the inherent right of every child and offer abundant learning opportunities.  Incidental learning and hands-on experiences in our outdoor natural setting are the focus of our programs.


Low student to teacher ratios are a priority and allow for a relaxed setting where children receive the attention they deserve.  Enrollment is limited to no more than 14 children a day, and a 7:1 student to teacher ratio.


At The Butterfly Garden, outdoor play; gardening; art exploration; and story-time are woven into every day within our loving, relaxed, natural setting.





"Now I see the secret to the making of the best persons.  It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth."     —Walt Whitman
