Let your child discover all that their amazing body can do!
Preschoolers are the perfect age to explore and deeply appreciate all that the outdoors has to offer; whether they are discovering the properties of mud in an outdoor mud kitchen or creating games in a tree stump, getting dirty, climbing rocks, or finding their way safely and happily through the forest it is all part of an outdoor adventure experience. Children discover exactly all of the wonderful things they are capable of as they explore, climb, run, jump and crawl through the forest.
The magic of forest school is the deep connection to place that your child will form during their time with us. Especially through multiple sessions. That attachment to place provides the solid foundation on which they grow wings of self confidence. No other program provides the opportunity to take the kind of supported risks that develops a child’s inner voice that says, “I can do this!”
At Sprouting Knowledge we know all children are capable and we pride ourselves at being highly attuned scaffolds for learning. When a challenge presents itself we are there with just the right amount of help to bridge the gap to ensure children feel the satisfaction of being successful.
After a day outdoors your child’s eyes will sparkle as they tell you about all of the things they did.
