'23-'24 Forest Friends "bye" year
Not an announcement I want to make, but - Forest Friends as it currently operates, will be taking a break for the 2023-2024 school year. This has been a difficult decision to make but many doors are closing, both personally and with the business, that have made it clear that we need to head in a new direction.
I am SO grateful for the support of everyone over the past 4 years in launching this venture, and this is really the beginning of a new phase more than it is the end of Forest Friends. I am especially thankful for your belief in outdoor ed for young children, and those word-of-mouth referrals. Let's stay in touch as we move into a new phase. It has been such a joy to create a place and time for holistic learning for your little ones.
What I won't be doing next school year:
Providing in-home preschool on our property
Providing drop-off child care
What I will be doing next year:
Staying in contact about our next steps as a school via email list. Be sure you are signed up, and reach out to me at any time!
Continuing to teach outdoor skills and nature study through other avenues in the community
Furthering my professional skills and planning the next phase
What is still up in the air:
Summer camps. If I do these summer '23 they will be very limited space or through other community venues. This email list will know about them first.
With gratefulness for you,
