I'm a former Teach for America teacher and writer (www.wilderchild.com) hoping to start a Forest School in the US. I have two children under three, so traveling to California for training is not realistic for me right now. Can you suggest some of your favorite books on the subject - specifically more comprehensive text books or online training.
Hi Lia! Welcome to the C&NN forum. I'm so glad you found us! Your school and camp look fantastic. We've been following the mini trend of forest kindergartens on our web site and on Facebook. Everyone's interested -- it still seems kind of rare in the US. I'll be eager to hear more about yours, as I'm sure will others here. I hope you make yourself at home -- you might enjoy our Natural Teachers Network to start. Wherever you explore here, I hope you find rich resources and camaraderie. Cheers!
