Description

Forest School
Ages 4-10

Led by Miss Diana, a certified Forest School Practitioner, this program follows the well-established methodologies of European and Canadian Forest Schools.  In Forest School we offer an experiential, learner-led approach to help each individual confidently explore the world and develop a love of learning. Focusing on the holistic needs of each learner, this program allows participants to grow and thrive socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. Each program is developed to suit the particular location, set of students, and season.

Subjects explored experientially in the forest, with students taking the lead, include science, physics and engineering, physical education, vocabulary and literacy, art, history, and more. Students also practice communication and collaboration as well as risk analysis and management. This holistic, experiential learning really helps children thrive in academics and in life.

*Please note* As this is not a drop-off program, a parent or guardian must accompany their child to each class. Our program is designed to enrich both the adult’s and child’s appreciation for nature while fostering a sense of community rooted in caregiver-child relationships.

All adult caregivers are required to obtain a state background (BCI/CORI) check and submit this documentation to Northern Rhode Island Forest School prior to participating in the program. Learn more about BCI checks in Rhode Island here.
