We Are Open!

Little Schoolhouse in the Woods is a non profit outdoor early education program based in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have worked hard to improve access to the outdoors with an outdoor shelter and outdoor hand washing stations, as well as enhanced cleaning protocols.

Donate Today!

We work hard to provide quality nature based experiences for early childhood, but our program costs don’t cover all of our expenses. If you’d like to support our dream of providing nature based education for children, please contribute by clicking here. Give a little, or give a lot, you’ll be supporting the love of nature and happy childhoods! Simply click on the donate button below to donate today! Thank you!!

Hike A Thon 2023

We believe it is important to get outside and play in nature, and we want to inspire everyone to be active outdoors with their families and friends. This is the perfect time of year to stretch our legs after a long, cold winter. The woods are changing and the weather is warming! Let’s go outside and hike!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Last year, we raised over $2,000! We hope to meet or exceed that again. Please be sure to support our fundraiser by donating, sharing this event and joining us in a community hike on April 22, 2023 at 10 am. We plan on taking our students hiking every day the week of April 17-21, rain or shine (severe weather exceptions). These funds help us with rising utility costs and materials for gardening, landscaping and maintaining the facilities.

You may register by filling out this form. Of course, you can always donate by clicking the button below, too.

Many Thanks!!!!

We are so grateful to Chris Leonard! His daughter no longer attends Little Schoolhouse, but he’s been working hard helping us out in a number of ways! Last summer, he helped excavate an area connecting the parking to the second driveway and filling it with gravel. This was a huge amount of work, and he was doing it in the hottest part of the summer! It looks great and has been a huge help with our traffic flow this year. He’s helped in so many other repairs and improvements around the yard and school over the past years that we can’t even count them all! If you see Chris around, buy that guy a beverage!

Work Day Volunteer Opportunity
