About Us

At Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary in Barnstable is a nature-based preschool for ages 3-5 that promotes whole-child readiness and helps children develop a lifelong relationship with the outdoors.

We are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care Early Education. Located on a 101-acre wildlife sanctuary, our magnificent outdoor classroom offers a wide variety of habitats—including forest, field, vernal pools, and tidal flats—as well as a nature playground. At least 80% of your child’s day will take place outside. Two canvas bell tents provide shelter and a base for adventures, and our indoor classroom is used for activities during severe weather.


The mission of our nature-based preschool is to facilitate experiences in nature that promote whole-child learning in cognitive, social-emotional, and physical realms while helping children develop a lifelong relationship with the outdoors.

Children in the program experience both free choice activities as well as guided experiences that allow them to have fun in nature while expanding their language, math, and science skills.
