About Us

Ferntop Nature Preschool is a  unique, Christ-centered preschool, licensed by the state of Tennessee, on an eight-acre farm in rural Williamson County. Ferntop is located on the property of Ms. Clare's home, providing delightful opportunities for discovery, creativity and play.

 

Our students enjoy the benefits of an entirely outdoor education. 

 

Ferntop provides experiences found in other traditional programs such as learning through play, discovery based learning, large and fine motor skills, creative expression, art and music and development of social skills, but uses nature and the themes of farm life as a springboard for learning. Caring for animals, the planting and tending of gardens, exploration of woods, fields and meadows, daily nature walks, working in the greenhouse, visits to the small library cabin, reading and expanding on excellent children's storybooks and literature, and enjoying a natural playground are some of the activities of a typical day.
