At forest preschool the children visit the same woodland on a regular basis and are given the freedom to play, opportunity to explore and learn about the natural environment, and support while learning how to handle risks, solve problems, and cooperate with their peers. Preschool runs all year, where children learn and play in the woods in all weather: sun, rain, snow, warm and cold, (barring high winds or other extreme weather). As the forest is ever changing, each day brings new and different exploration opportunities. Children play, learn boundaries – both physical and social - grow in confidence, and become self-starters. Children in this environment learn that there are different ways of solving problems and they develop their critical thinking skills daily. Learn more about Magnolia's Forest Preschool program.
NEW Magnolia Forest Workshop, Ages 4-7, Afternoon Class
This class is designed to support children's constructive play. We introduce tools and teach constructive skills as the children's interests lead. Children have long periods of time to play in the woods at the new Sherman Hill Campus. Their constructive work occurs within the context of their ideas and their environmental explorations. (1, 2 & 3 day options available. Inquire: email@example.com)
