Welcome to A Child’s Nature

A Child's Nature offers families in the Monadnock and Souhegan communities a unique program offering quality, loving care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

We care for every part of a child's nature. Inspired by the principles of Waldorf education, A Child's Nature strives to educate the whole child: hands, heart, mind, and spirit.  

Our daily schedule includes two to four hours of outdoor play. We provide opportunities for children to imagine, explore and discover through play and purposeful work. A strong focus on community nourishes a sense of belonging and ensures the children feel secure and self-confident both within the classroom and in the world.



We are located on the beautiful wooded campus of the Pine Hill Waldorf School in Wilton, NH.

In 2013, the Pine Hill Waldorf School in Wilton NH offered A Child's Nature (formerly the Pine Hill Child Care Center in Peterborough NH) a new home on their campus.

Our Sunflower Preschool (ages 3 to 5 years) is housed at one end of the central school building in a large, open classroom with a kitchen.

Our Bluebell Cottage Infant/Toddler group (babies from 6 weeks old and toddlers up to 3 years) is located in the cozy Bluebell Cottage.  

Both classes use the wonderful natural playgrounds surrounding the Bluebell Cottage, while the older children also explore the nearby woods and trails.  


“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings,
who are able of themselves to impart
purpose and direction to their lives.”
