After School Care

The Nature Nanny offers school pick up and home drop off. From start to finish we will be outside in the elements. Often we will start with a picnic and then take to the trails and shores of Seattle's beautiful parks. Inspired by inquiry-based learning, everyday is a new adventure and the students determine the focus. At the end of the day your child will come home refreshed, energized and full of new insight into the natural world.

Nature Ventures


Throughout the year Nature Nanny will host Nature Ventures at different parks around King and Clallam County. Nature Ventures are a great opportunity for families to get outside with their kids and make lasting connections to the natural world. We will engage in activities that parents and their children can enjoy and learn from together. Nature Ventures explore on and off trail, above and below the water, rain or shine.
