Welcome to Magnolia Forest Preschool, a “Natural Childlife Preserve.” Our school runs on the belief that children are drawn to experience, to learning, and to each other. We see it as our responsibility to create an environment where each child can reach out for life and touch it, wallow in it, tinker with it, interpret it, and express it. The forest provides open-ended materials that inspire curiosity, wonder, manipulation, motion, contemplation, and gales of laughter. Here, our number one goal is to empower children.
Magnolia now hosts children at four campuses in the Puget Sound area: Sequim, Edmonds and two in Poulsbo. Each campus walks out the Magnolia philosophy in a unique environment with teachers dedicated to their students and their community.
