A Day with Tiny Trees Preschool at King County’s Cougar Mountain

King County Parks has teamed up with Tiny Trees Preschool to offer affordable, high quality, outdoor preschool education in parks across the region. We spent the day at Cougar Mountain for the outside scoop on the program. 37404720650_6f89c99c76_oIn typical PNW fashion, each munchkin is outfitted in a grunden style rain suit so that they are prepared for the weather.

Children utilize the outdoor classroom in a variety of ways to gain a quality education in reading, math and science. Through exploration and group work, children learn vital social, emotional and academic skills.

We couldn’t help but appreciate the adorable but fierce facial expressions given to our photographer.

King County Parks is working with Tiny Trees through its Community Partnership Grants (CPG) program that establishes public-private partnerships to provide new and improved recreation opportunities in King County’s parks.

In 2018, this partnership will expand to Five Mile Lake Park between Auburn and Federal Way, White Center Heights Park in White Center, and Maplewood Park in east Renton.

Welcome Tiny Trees!
