Changing with the Seasons: Exciting Forest School Updates For Fall
Updated: Aug 24
Nature gives to every season some time and beauties of its own.
New Afternoon Session Added!
As more families opt for homeschooling, earthschooling and other flexible education models, we realized that expanding our programming for fall was essential for public health. Now families can choose to enroll from 8am-12 pm OR 1-5pm. Register Now - Spots are filling quickly!
New Outerwear Savings Program for Students
We're proud to be partnering with Swedish children's brand Polarn O. Pyret to extend a 20% discount to our enrolled families. P.O.P makes high-quality weatherproof outerwear that is perfect for year-round forest school. Our families can register for the savings program here, and once approved the discount will automatically apply to their online shopping cart.
PS: Did you know that we also have an existing "lending library" of rainsuits to pull from in inclement weather? We hope to continue to add to this gear closet in the year ahead. Please let us know if you'd like to contribute any gently-used children's sized outdoor gear to our collection !
New Educator Benefits
We are passionate about outdoor education, and that includes outdoor EDUCATORS. We're excited to announce that Forest School Foundation is now a Living Wage Certified employer, joining an small and special group of other schools and nonprofits in supporting a fair and equitable local economy. The Board is also beginning to really solidify our expanded employee benefits package - stay tuned to our Careers page for more!
New Team Members
Please join us in welcoming our new teachers and administrative staff! We are thrilled to have such amazing talent on our team.... and we're still growing! We continue to look for quality outdoor facilitators to work with in a part-time or substitute capacity, so if you know anyone please consider joining our new educator database to be kept in the loop about on-going opportunities.
