The Learning Vine Preschool Program at The Grapevine meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9am-12pm. This program welcomes children ages 3-5. Miss Amy and Miss Paula are the teachers for this outdoor based preschool program.

Our hands-on preschool program takes place almost entirely outdoors so that the children can move freely and breathe in fresh air everyday as they learn and play. We focus on fostering creativity, social interaction, problem solving, independence, physical movement and learning through games and activities.
Each morning the children arrive at the outdoor play yard and choose to play in the sandbox, climb, crawl, run, push trucks around, play in the mud/snow kitchen, paint, or complete a quiet activity in the play house. Later in the morning the children are invited by chimes calling them to our Morning Circle. This is where we gather together to sing the song of the week, play a game, and create a plan for the remainder of our morning. After Morning Circle we eat a hearty snack together and then return to our play and daily activities. Toward the end of our preschool morning the children are again invited by chimes to the Closing Circle. This is where we read a story and sing our closing song.
At The Learning Vine Outdoor Preschool Program we strive to have every child feel welcomed and honored. We want each child’s first school experience to be fun and joyful!
