Outdoor Woodland Learners
OK, I may be biased with this location. Outdoor Woodland Learners is a family owned, preschool through third grade, homeschool enrichment program. You may be thinking to yourself… “this is a very odd thing to use as a location.” Spoiler alert, MY family owns it, which is where the bias comes into play.
This is good news for you, though! The property is obviously private and your session will NEVER take place during the program’s hours of operation, meaning that all 18 acres are ours to roam! I have hosted a multitude of sessions on the Outdoor Woodland Learner’s property that my parents own. It is rich with foliage, private, cozy little pine groves and small seasonal streams. I walk these forests daily during the school season as I am one of the teachers here in the mornings! Not to metion, I grew up on these very grounds. To say I have learned a thing or two about the best spots and breathtaking little nooks would be an understatment.
Where is Outdoor Woodland Learners located?
Located in Berkley MA, Outdoor Woodland Learners is situated about 500 feet off of the road, down a long driveway. Alpacas line the driveway and are available to be included in the background of your images if you so wish… Parking is of course free and portable bathrooms are on site for wardrobe changes or restroom needs.
A bit about Outdoor Woodland Learners.
Outdoor Woodland Learners is a small, family-run nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that believes in nurturing the deep and inherent bond between child and nature. This is accomplished through programs offering unstructured free play in nature, outdoor experiential learning designed to develop an intimate, personal connection to the earth and its inhabitants, and Montessori-inspired teachings. Our goal is to encourage exploration, learning, and wonder by providing opportunities for creativity, cooperation, imaginative play, physical strength development, mental strength development, and love of the outdoors within our natural world.
It is OWL’s belief that organic learning through nature’s classroom creates happier, healthier, smarter, inspired, earth-minded children.
What makes Outdoor Woodland Learners a good location?
If a totally private experience in a dense, foliage filled, fairytale-esque forest is what you seek, this is a wonderful location that I have the exclusive priviledge of offering to my clients.
