Connection to the Natural World is an important one for even the youngest of children. (Forest Days is for ages 3 1/2 - 5.) Our forest days will allow for play-based learning in a woodland setting at Mine Falls Park. We may also add components such as Mindfulness, Brain Gym, Yoga, and Music.
After a short "hike" to our meeting spot, students will gather for a check in time and morning greeting. We will reflect on what we are hearing in the moment during our greeting time and talk about areas we would like to explore An hour or more of free play and exploration will be followed by snack. After snack, students will take a few minutes (if they would like) to write or draw about their day. Our time in nature will end with gathering our gear and hiking back to the parking lot for parent pick up. As students become accustomed to being in the woods, we will explore areas in the park outside of our designated meeting space. A minimum of 5 students are required to run a class with a maximum of 8 students.
