About Us

Field & Forest Outdoor Programs was established in 2011 as a natural outgrowth of the Attic Learning Community, an independent, progressive school serving children K-12.  The Field & Forest Outdoor Programs integrate beautifully with the Attic’s mission statement: Nurturing in children a sense of self, a passion for learning, community & childhood.  For more information on the Attic Learning Community, please click on link below.

Field & Forest is situated on the Attic's  private, beautiful wooded site in rural Woodinville, Washington, allowing for open-ended play and exploration.  The property includes a mix of grassy meadowlands, mature Pacific Northwest trees such as Douglas Fir, Cedar, and Maple trees, and a serenely forested ravine that nurtures a tiny creek.  Children experience seasonal changes and investigate the plants and creatures who make their home in this richly divergent biome.  

The Attic Learning Community was established as a non-profit, non-membership Corporation in the State of Washington on August 23, 1999.  The Attic opened its doors in the fall of 1999, with 16 students, and has now grown into a thriving community of just over 100 students.  The Attic received its Federal non-profit status, 501(c)3, in May of 2002. 


Field & Forest shares a philosophy and campus with the Attic Learning Community, however enrollment in Field & Forest Programs does not constitute enrollment into the Attic Learning Community Program.  Admissions for the two programs is administered separately.
