Welcome to our new and improved website! Here, I hope you can find all the information you'll need, whether you're a current or prospective family of our program. I'll be using this blog to post bits about our curriculum as well as the future of Forest Friends.
The future of Forest Friends is in an exciting phase - with our current pilot program at McEuen Park up and running, we are looking towards a full program for the 2020-2021 school year (September - May), for 4-6 year old children! There will be lots of details forthcoming in the next few months, with registration opening in February. Please be sure to reach out so we can put you on an email contact list.
Forest Friends is the product of a lifelong dream of mine, as well as the investment that others have made - from my Grandma Young teaching me that I could eat dayliles, my parents letting me keep collections of nature finds (and soil, sorry mom) in my room, to the staff at Hashawha Outdoor School that let me intern as a high school student, to college professors that encouraged me, and my own husband and children as we share adventures together. I am incredibly excited to now share this journey with the community and help grow some of our youngest learners.
