We’re planning an Educator Open House!

Please help us shape & plan what has the potential to be an incredible event! Play, learn, grow & network with us!

This event will be open to anyone who considers themselves an “educator” – teacher / professor at any level, RECE / ECE, EA, etc. – that wants to learn more about the Forest and Nature School (FNS) model and how to incorporate it into their teaching/setting.

This event is NOT for families interested in participating in our programs.

Philosophy:

In each of our programs, we strive to play, learn, and grow, and to build relationships to the land, each other, and ourselves through meaningful learning opportunities in a natural environment. Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic facilitators loves to learn alongside your child while they explore their curiosities and wonder at the ever-changing environment. We ask guiding questions that help to deepen a child’s curiosity and encourage opportunities to build confidence, resilience, and self-regulation. We do this through a child-led and play-based approach, and we follow an inquiry- or interest-based emergent curriculum (we dig deeper when and where there is interest with no predetermined “plan”).
