Please Read Our Philosophy & Approach Here
Our half day Wee Folk Forest program includes a morning circle, unstructured time in the forest, a campfire on chilly days, snack and story time (usually inside our magical tipi!), and an adventure walk or continued nature exploration. Our full day program also includes lunchtime, nature stories, rest or nap time (we take our naps in hammocks hung in the peaceful trees), with plenty of exploration and free play under the trees. We sing our way through the day! And we always close our time together with a reflection and song of gratitude for our time together.
Our creative parent cooperative allows you to stay with your child in the forest, or choose our drop-off “hosted” option. All parents who host another child are paid a host fee by that child’s family.
An important aspect of our program are the monthly community events which bring us together through the various seasons of the year. We ask that our forest families make every effort to come to each community event, so we may give a message to our children about the importance of slowing down and spending time together in nature.
