2019 Vacation Classes
ENROLLMENT & WAITLIST FOR 2019 VACATION CLASSES IS NOW CLOSED.
Fall 2019 Vacation Class details will be posted here in August.
Our classes allow the kids the freedom to actively learn, while regularly immersing themselves in nature in the heart of Brooklyn. 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 as the backdrop! In the true nature of a 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 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. Classes are open to ages 2-8, and divided into two age groups: early childhood for ages 2-5 and childhood for ages 6-8.
