At our Fox Walkers Forest Kindergarten program, children ages 4-6 are given space to learn, grow, and connect with each other and the natural world.

Through engaging in nature awareness games, stories, movement circles, creative expression, independent play, wandering, practicing earth skills, and having some good old muddy fun, deep connections are formed and the learning experience is embodied.

Our instructors hold a nurturing space while offering developmentally appropriate activities that awaken and encourage children’s natural curiosity.  Students gain a deeper awareness of the natural world, the community that surrounds them, and their unique gifts and talents as individuals.

*We will not be holding class for these two weeks from 9/26-10/6 because Melissa and Patrick will finally be taking their honeymoon to Ireland to study Ethnobotany and the traditions of their ancestors.  Unfortunately we don't have substitute teachers lined up at this point. We realize that this may inconvenience some families and we and will try our best to help families find alternative care if needed. Please make sure to let us know on your enrollment form if you would like help lining up alternative care for your child. Thanks!
