Nature in the heart of Brooklyn.


Brooklyn Nature Days offers forest school classes for children in Prospect Park. Sunshine, raindrops, trees, plants, and animals all provide opportunities for the kids to lead the way — learning, creating, exploring, and discovering outside.


Our Philosophy

Nature provides an expansive outdoor classroom that inspires and excites kids to move, create, explore, discover, question, and engage with each other. Fresh air, open spaces, the quiet and calm pace, and a landscape of trees, plants, and living creatures offers a freedom and wonder that is unmatched, especially in the heart of a city. Exploring outside is safe and builds confidence, independence, and competence.


Holiday Classes

Enrollment is now open!

Using the seasons, plants, and animals as inspiration, and provided with simple tools and found and recycled materials, the kids are invited to lead the way climbing, creating, singing, digging, painting, and connecting with nature. We offer a small group size and a low student to teacher ratio, allowing us to move through the park with ease and ensuring all the children are safe and heard as we explore.


Fall 2019 By-Semester Classes

Spaces still available at our east side drop off at Lincoln Road & Ocean Avenue.

Our classes are a brilliant way to provide an alternative to preschool for children outdoors in New York City. Our classes begin in September 2019 and run through mid-June 2020. Committing to our full year program guarantees your child a space throughout our fall, winter, and spring semesters, as well as a discounted tuition over enrolling by semester.


2019-2020 Afterschool Classes

Enrollment closed, waitlist open.

Our classes allow children the freedom to actively learn while regularly immersing themselves with nature in the heart of Brooklyn. We pick them up directly from school and dismiss them from the park at the end of class.
