"This program has been life changing for my son. He gets to explore nature and get in the dirt, which he loves, but also develop group social skills (taking turns, quiet in circle time, collaborative play)” - FPS Parent
When parents and caregivers arrive at the end of a Forest Preschool morning for pick-up, they are often met by happily dirty children – children who have been making sense of their world by delightfully following their curiosity in natural spaces using eager hands, wide eyes, and listening ears.
Forest Preschool is an exploratory, nature and play-based program with an indoor classroom that empowers children to be active in their own learning process while providing them the means to connect to one another and the natural world in a caring way. Our program supports development of the whole child, sparks curiosity and a sense of wonder, and instills a love of learning and connection to place.
