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.

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!!

Open Enrollment has begun!

Open Enrollment began November 7, 2022. We would love to accept every child, but have a limited number of spaces. We will let you know as soon as we are able! Thank you for your interest in outdoor education!

Community Story Time (w/JackO’Lanterns!)

Every year, we carve as many JackO’Lanterns as we can and then line our Nature Trail and let the students come see them all lit up in the evening!

We take a short hike on our trail to see a bunch of JackO’Lanterns lit up! We tell a story (not spooky) and maybe sing the Five Little Pumpkins! This is great for younger children, siblings and their families. We have so much fun!




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!

Hike-A-Thon 2022!

We are excited to announce our Hike-A-Thon fundraiser was a huge success! You helped us exceed our fundraising goal of $2,000!!!. Your pledges supported our students in a daily hike from April 4-8, culminating in a Saturday hike at the Little Schoolhouse in the Woods (2628 Montana Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45211) on April 9 which was open to the community and was a bit rainy, but that didn’t stop the smiles and fellowship.

We love hiking with the children and hope to inspire everyone in our community to get outside and enjoy a hike! THANK YOU!

Work Day Volunteer Opportunity

We are hosting a Work Day soon! This is an excellent opportunity to help us get ready for the next big chapter in our outdoor education adventure! RSVP by emailing us at littleschoolhouseinthewoods@gmail.com
