Tiny Seeds Parent Child Classes
For children ages 1-3 and their caregivers.
More than a playgroup! Parents learn and grow with their children as the group explores a carefully designed play space, participates in art and circle time activities chosen specifically for the very young, cooks and shares a vegetarian snack, discovers the world outdoors, and socializes in an introductory preschool setting. Depending on the size of the group (limited to no more than 10 children), one or two experienced early childhood educators will lead the group and be available to answer parenting questions.
Classes are two hours in duration, from 9:00 am until 11:00 am on Thursday mornings.
Spring session runs February 19 - April 30, with one break on March 28.
Price is $260 for the spring session.
To enroll in the parent child class, please complete a registration form and mail it with payment to 14140 NW Newberry Road, Portland, OR 97231.
Preschool and Kindergarten Art Classes
Creating art helps young children develop imagination, creativity, and self-esteem as well as early math skills, such as, spatial awareness, pattern, and symmetry. At Wildwood Nature School, the focus is on the process of making art — learning about color, line, and shape and experiencing different media — rather than on achieving a pre-determined “ideal” result.
We offer two classes, each tailored to a particular age group. The classes are drop-off, although parents are welcome to stay if they like.:
Tuesdays 10:00 am – 11:00 am, ages 2-4
Session 3 (February 19 - March 19) All About Color – Children will explore primary and secondary colors.
Session 4 (April 2 – 30) All About Line – Children will investigate the different lines and shapes that can be created through art.
Tuesdays 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm, ages 4-6
Session 3 (February 19 - March 19) Art in 3-D – Children will explore sculpture and construction to create artwork that moves off the flat page.
Session 4 (April 2 - April 30) The Art of Mathematics– Children will learn open-ended art processes to explore numbers, geometry, weight, and time while creating their own pieces of beauty.
$72 per session, includes materials fee

“We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found this gem of a school. The location of the school at the edge of the Wildwood Trail gives children ready access to one of Portland’s treasures and is worth our drive. By the third day of school, my son begged him to drop him off early because he ‘loves love loves my school!’” — Marcelle, Beaverton Mom
