Welcome to Barefoot and Buckets at TimberNook of Greater Portland, ME. This program emanates childhood days past. A traditional TimberNook program where young children have hours of unique play experiences that challenge their mind and body in beautiful natural settings. They’ll be doing everything from setting up shops to creating homes in the woods. And so much more!

The TimberNook curriculum weaves together the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors with a thorough understanding of child development. The result is a sensory play experience that supports every aspect of the growing child. Each day we will have a different theme that gives the children inspiration and ideas to bring into their play. This program is designed to give ample time to explore the natural world around us, develop new friendships and delve deeply into the creative world of play.

Our site offers opportunities for individual and group play amidst a beautiful wooded area equipped with rope swings, materials for building and plenty of room to run. We make every effort to accommodate any child who wishes to attend our program.
