Wee Folk Forest Kindergarten is a "rain or shine" outdoor preschool in the greater Boulder area for children ages 4-7. We are inspired by the Waldkindergartens of Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Finland, where children spend the early years of their education in entirely outdoor settings. There are enormous benefits for children who attend forest kindergartens, ranging from social-emotional and sensory-motor health, to a richly developed sense of place, and an active imagination.

When observed, these children convey an empowerment uncommon for their age, and a contentment that will make anyone "run for the forest".


Wee Folk Forest Kindergarten is a program of Living Arts School, Colorado's folk school.
