Welcome: Tender Tracks is no longer running preschool & summer camp programs but rather offerings for Parents and Nature Based Teachers: NEW WEBSITE COMING

Hello, if you have come to this page you are most likely looking to see if Tender Tracks is the right nature program for you and your child.  We are so GLAD for your interest in this type of offering!  Deepening and developing your child’s connection to the natural world as a foundation for Life, is what Tender Tracks is all about.

We must share with you however, that Tender Tracks is switching gears.  We will no longer be offering programs for children, but rather Parents and Teachers.  To learn more please click on the Consultation or Trainings tab for what is currently being offered.

After years and years of directly serving the young ones I, Wendolyn Bird, the Founder, Director and Lead Teacher wish to pass on the decades worth of trainings and experiences of what I have learned, from many areas in life, that will be of great support to parents and teachers alike.

If you have any interest in this please, do contact me at the email provided below for more detailed info.  I would love to be of support via the offerings of my brand new online(for now) live coaching sessions, consultations/counseling, and private nature sessions.

As to where to go for your young ones, though I do not have a list of Outdoor Preschools there are more and more cropping up.  Key words for Googling are Forest Preschool and Nature Preschool. I also encourage you to become a member of CAFS/Ca. Association of Forest Schools to gain more education and up to date info and support.

May  you, your child and your family have on going and deepening connections to the Natural world, the place that provides ALL THINGS for us.

We at Tender Tracks send much gratitude for all the families we have been able to serve and the joy we have received from doing so.

Serving the Bay Area for the past 24 years has been a great, great joy and deep abiding blessing.

with warmth,

Wendolyn and staff

Tender Trackers have a lot of fun while building a bond with the natural world
When my youngest son, Dylan, was part of a Tender Tracks group, he came home each week settled, calm and full of stories from his day in nature. Through Wendolyn’s patience and her own deep connection with the earth, Dylan received the gift of truly becoming comfortable with nature. He now carries that connection with him every day, and no doubt there is joy in his heart when he is outside exploring.
While attending Tender Tracks, my son Gabriel’s awareness of the natural world has blossomed. In his creative play he incorporates the seasons of the year, what animals are there, and other elements of the environment around him. He has become more gentle with plants and animals, and even with his little sister. He looked forward to Tender Tracks every week, and came home happy and exhausted.
