TimberNook provides nature-based play experiences for children that challenge the senses and inspire creativity,
independence, and imagination in the great outdoors.

The TimberNook Experience

TimberNook programs offer the ultimate sensory experience for children, challenging the mind, body and the senses through meaningful outdoor play opportunities. Each experience is unique to the location, provider, and group of children, and includes free play in sensory-rich learning environments to further enhance play schemes.


Developmental Support

TimberNook is not your typical nature program. TimberNook programs intricately weave the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors with a thorough understanding of child development and alternative education. The result is a sensory play experience that supports every aspect of the growing child. We do this by skillfully using the environment as inspiration for creative play opportunities.

Transform with TimberNook

Providers often speak of the “magic” they witness at TimberNook, even over the course of just one week. Children of all abilities are able to challenge their social, emotional, sensory, and cognitive skills at TimberNook, the therapeutic benefits of which are vast and often surprising to all involved.

What Parents Are Saying…

We couldn’t have chosen a better school for our son.  We have watched him grow from an apprehensive 3-year old to a confident 5-year old while attending Acorn School. The teachers are incredibly caring and genuinely interested in our son’s well being.  We look forward to sending our next child to Acorn in a few years and know she’ll have a similar wonderful preschool experience.
