Forest Friends Preschool Program
Forest Friends is a Waldorf-inspired, nature-connection preschool program where young children are bathed in rich cultural experiences that are interwoven with the enchantments of the natural world. Forest Friends is now offering its preschool program at the beautiful Bothin Girl Scout campus, near Fairfax, in collaboration with the Heartwood community.
In this program, children spend a great deal of time outside in garden, field, and forest. Students play, move, explore, discover, imagine, build, work, craft, and connect deeply with themselves, their friends, and the natural world. There is a strong cultural container to support a sense of social and emotional safety, in which children can thrive, engage, and develop optimally. Our weekly rhythm includes gardening, cooking, painting or coloring, stories, songs, games, rhythm activities, crafting, campfires, and lots of free play in nature!
