Event description:

Kew Kids Forest School, located near Forest Park in Kew Gardens/North Richmond Hill, is a forest school modeled after the nature preschool movement that began in Europe and has more recently spread to the U.S. We believe, and research confirms, that children learn best when they are exposed to nature on a consistent basis. Through multi-sensory explorations and cooperative play, our program aims to cultivate in young children a love of the outdoors, hone a sense of wonder and provide healthy challenges that instill confidence, capability, and self-reliance. Our mix age, inquiry-based emergent approach offers outdoor play experiences, such as building a fort or digging a channel between two puddles, and opportunities to practice the social and intellectual skills of planning, problem-solving, decision-making, and collaboration. We offer both full day as well as two, three, and five-day AM or PM drop-off options. Please visit our website www.kewkids.org for more information and join us at the Open House to find out more about this first Forest School in Queens!
