Experience the wonder of the outdoors! Forest Friends School gives children the opportunity to explore nature at their own pace. Half-day programs are entirely play-based and student-led, guided by caring teachers who encourage curiosity in the outdoors. We take pride in providing an environment that is safe, welcoming, and fun, where children are free to play, learn, and grow.
"Forest Friends creates an environment where Pierson is free to exert his energy towards what interests him the most, while learning and developing life skills in the process. He spends his days using his imagination, exploring, and learning all about God’s beautiful creation—and getting dirty! I am just so grateful to have found the Forest Friends School and the fun and caring staff who created such a wonderful program!" -Mia Pratt
The benefits of forest school are well-researched and documented, both nationally and globally. Given a safe environment to explore, your children will be able to develop physical, emotional, social, and cognitive skills through self-discovery and emergent curriculum.
