Ready Set Go Outside offers children ages 2 to 13 an opportunity to create their own learning environment. Children explore areas in our community through hiking, writing, reading, playing, building, observing, digging, and creating. The tools we use to enhance learning activities will be found in the forest or reused and recycled from the community.
Learn about our programs
Teachers will facilitate child led learning experiences where children are free to be who they are. No lining up. No testing. No electronics… just exploration of the natural world where teachers observe, advise on safety and offer knowledge of natural habitats. Children are natural learners and we are their guides who inspire them to love learning. Teachers will observe skills and growth and provide evidence of learning.
About our philosophy
“Highly recommend Ready, Set, Go! My kids have been attending for a little over a year now and love it! Marisa and staff allow the kids to learn and experiment on their own and with some guidance. The kids come home with smiles on their faces from experiences that are not only fun, but educational. 10/10 in my book!”Autumn Hawkes
“I love this school because you don’t have to wear a mask and you don’t have to sit down all day and you get fresh air and you get to skate and in the summer, you can go swimming in a pond and you have fun and we have a big cabin. Will you please come.”Wyatt Jackson (6)
“Both my kids went to Ready, Set, Go Learning Center for their preschool years. The environment is great for learning, creativity, and positive social experiences. The staff were so kind, loving, and fun. I really appreciated the connection to the natural environment, field trips, and many opportunities for play. I would highly recommend sending your children here!”Elizabeth Cyr
“Ready Set Go has been amazing for our outdoorsy, adventurous and dirt loving kiddo. The owner Marisa and her wonderful staff are caring, energetic and passionate people who create wonderful experiences and memories every day. We couldn’t think of a better place for our son and we would recommend Ready, Set, Go! to anyone who has an outdoor, adventure loving kiddo!“Shay Murphy
“Our son loved outdoor learning and all the amazing hands-on experience Marisa created for the group. The kids weren’t rushed through lesson after lesson. They had time to figure things out and truly understand… This year our son went back to public school and to my surprise he was at or above where he needed to be starting Middle school… I am so happy for him and could not be happier with his experience at RSG….I know our son is better off today.”Jennifer Elgaaen
