Forest School focuses on learner-led outdoor play that encourages curiosity and exploration. We observe and support children in their chosen forms of play, allowing children to develop confidence and independence as well as internal motivation to learn. Explorers build interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication, cooperation, and problem-solving. They also build spatial and motor development. Our forest school focuses highly on the social and emotional aspects of learning. Guides help students assess risks and benefits so their decisions are always informed. Explorers will learn about nature and the world around them through hands on experiences! Dress for mess!
Class facilitates open-ended, all-ages mixed play! Our group meets in Thousand Oaks. Primarily ages 2-8yo, but older/younger siblings welcome!
