Play helps prepare children to learn.

But if all they do is play all day, how will they be ready for school? A common topic on site visits is school readiness. Parents often look wistfully at the happy, free, liberated, engaged, laughing children and ask, 'But if all they do is play all day, how will they be ready for school? If my child comes to Little Forest Folk do I need to tutor him at home? O

We are so happy Daisy found such a loving home. Here she is getting her bedtime story, "The True Story of the Big Bad Wolf."

Our dear pig, Daisy, has moved to a new 15 acre home on Whidbey Island and is joining her new friends, Ziva the donkey and some goats. After seven years and two pigs, we realize that pigs are very social animals and need to be with their own kind. Since we cannot have two large farm animals in the city, we cannot meet this need of Daisy's.

We are looking into some other kind of docile animal which will adapt better to the environment we can provide and will let you know of the options we find.

Stay tuned for a whimsical and artistic tribute to our wonderful pigs, Daisy and Oliver!

Fremont Community School: Open House – Saturday, January 28, from 10 to noon. (please note the date change from Jan. 21)

Are you looking for a caring and creative play-based preschool for your child that offers a minimum of two hours play outdoors each day? Contact Teresa Donovan at to reserve your spot for our Open House!

Fremont Community School’s mission is to cultivate curiosity, friendship, and wonder through play and exploration of the natural world in a joy-filled home away from home.

Our vision is to nurture each child's own competence by providing a healthy environment where children can collaborate, create, and care for one another.

Our Values:
• Hearts - We foster empathy and an appreciation of beauty that promotes the emergence of the whole child. Exposure to art and to nature opens our hearts.
• Hands - We empower children to discover their physical selves in the outdoors, learning about the natural world and the connections to their daily life. Free play learning allows the natural capacities of the child to flourish.
• Minds - We introduce children to the complexity and beauty of the world around them, instilling a sense of curiosity and wonder. Children learn about the world by actively engaging in the environment.

You are also welcome to schedule a tour of our school on a Thursday morning at 9:15. A tour gives you an opportunity to see the school in action during a typical morning. If you are interested, please Contact Teresa Donovan at
