Connecting young children to the important spaces and places of their childhoods, where learning and growing happens naturally. Supporting place-based education and experiences for families in nature by nourishing connection and a sense of community. Promoting time in nature and active play for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Educating parents, teachers, childcare providers, and the community on the developmental benefits of unstructured, unhurried play.

Helping Young Children and Families find Joy in the Heart of Nature

We believe that childhood should be filled with magic, wonder, and a whole lot of play! We also know that time in nature and outdoor play is essential to the health and well-being of all young children. We offer play-based, nature-inspired programs for children ages 0-6, and their families in the Greater Puget Sound area.

Saving Childhood

Greenplay Cooperative is a non-profit organization committed to joyful and wholesome early learning experiences inspired by nature. Joined by the mothers, fathers, relatives, caregivers, and the greater community, our hope is for a future where childhood is protected as a vital and precious time for learning and growing, naturally.

Our Little Sparrows programs, including our summer nature camps and forest school are located within the Lake Wilderness Arboretum in Maple Valley, WA.
