River Song is a small non-profit Waldorf preschool and kindergarten in Fort Collins, nestled in the foothills of northern Colorado. We have 3 mixed-age preschool classes (2 ½ - 5 years), a private kindergarten program (5-7 years), and nature-based programs for 7-12-year-olds, including after-school care and a summer camp. Our classes pay regular visits (at least once a week) to two magical natural areas. Both are just a few minutes walk from the school. We visit a local green space we call “the forest” and “Grandmother Willow,” a beautiful old willow tree right next to Spring Creek—a wonderful place for water play, discovery, and observing wildlife and the seasonal changes.
