Monday - Friday
Ages 2 (by Sept. 5th) - 3 years
This program incorporates early learning best practices and ecology education to create a holistic learning experience specifically designed for children ages 2 - 3. We use storytelling, nature and mindfulness games, free play, expressive arts and social mentoring to nourish children's relationship to self, to one another and to the natural world.
"I've definitely seen growth in my daughters; there seems to be a little more self control, a little more communication, and a distinct self confidence that can come with not just having the choice to do something but the ability to direct it They are learning so much about how to just "be", be content, be experimental, be confident, be aware, be empathetic - be children, through their interaction with nature and Joanna and Sean's expert guidance.”
- Jennifer Forest School parent
