Free play in the forest for all ages!

Children learn through experience and we believe the forest is their perfect teacher. Humans have a biologically innate connection to Nature, and young ones of all ages in this group will be presented with the opportunity to explore their natural surroundings and feed that connection. This type of free play - child-directed, unstructured, in a "yes zone" - promotes self-reliance and problem-solving skills, and encourages independence and curiosity. The benefits are numerous. And, it is our hope that by giving our children the opportunity to connect with their world, we will foster in them a sense of good stewardship of the Earth.
But really, everyone knows that it's just plain fun to play in the forest!
