Fall/Winter 2019 Saplings

registration is now open!

Join us outside for an early-childhood adventure in nature! This weekly class for children ages 1-4 and their caregiver gathers together no matter the weather in our classroom without walls. Our curriculum is inspired by the Forest Kindergarten model, guided by the seasons and what we encounter on a daily basis. Each meeting presents a new opportunity for making connections through hands-on discovery, child-led exploration, and natural play. We revisit the same places, with the same faces, building within each session a unique community of curious wonder-seekers. It's always a beautiful day at Loblolly; come outside and play with us!




Come forth into
the light of things;
let nature be
your teacher.
- William Wordsworth

Tuition for returning families

$180 per child per session (10 total classes)

$90 per each additional participating child 

Enrollment fee covers customized curriculum, snacks, and all class materials.


Most Puddle Jumpers are between the ages of 1-4. However, some children younger than 12 months may be ready to fully participate in class! If you feel this is the case for your child, we encourage you to register him/her as a student rather than as an accompanying infant so that they receive snack, class materials, and the benefit of a the custom curriculum.


Infants in carriers and strollers are always welcome in class with their caregiver and enrolled siblings.

Have a question or want to discuss further? Email us.


We are honored to partner with the Charleston County Park system to offer Puddle Jumpers in these beautiful natural grounds.


There is a $2 entrance fee for the park for each person over age of 2, or annual passes can be purchased. These fees are not included in our registration.

Makeup policy

We know things come up (we have kids, too!) So if you can't attend your scheduled class we'll help you find a makeup class on another day.

We will only cancel classes if Charleston County closes the schools, and in that case we will work to find a viable makeup option for everyone.
