Neptune Nature School
alameda's first forest-style preschool
About the Business
Introducing Alameda’s first forest-style preschool! We serve children 2.5-6 years old, providing a preschool program in local nature reserves and parks. We named our school Neptune as a small homage to the original name of Alameda’s Crab Cove-Neptune Beach-as we will be spending a great deal of time in this local nature reserve, learning about our local marine biology & coastal ecology. Much of our format is modeled on the European, and emerging American forest school preschool models, spending 100% of our time outdoors.
