Afterschool 2019-2020: Enroll for the full year or for our fall semester only.

Our classes allow children the freedom to actively learn while regularly immersing themselves with nature in the heart of Brooklyn. Using the seasons, plants, and animals as inspiration, and provided with simple tools and found and recycled materials, children are invited to lead the way: climbing, creating, singing, digging, painting, playing and working together while connecting with nature. In the true spirit of forest school, we embrace the weather and meet year round in the sun, rain, and snow.

The benefits of time spent in nature for children's health, creativity, confidence, and cognitive, social, and emotional growth are innumerable. We offer a small group size and a ratio of one teacher to every four to five children, allowing us to move through the park with ease and ensuring all the children are safe and heard as we explore.

We currently offer our afterschool classes for students at P.S. 10, P.S. 130 (lower school,) P.S. 282, P.S. 321, P.S. 889, P.S. 9, and K280. If you would like to bring our program to your child's school please contact us at afterschool@brooklynnaturedays.com
