Forest Preschool/ Kindergarten originated in Scandinavia several decades ago and in recent years has become more and more popular in the United States. This year the idea has taken on special importance. Beaver Brook's Forest Preschool started last Spring and we are excited to return this Fall. The program is entirely outdoors with an emphasis on nature experience, problem-solving, and creativity. We follow an emergent, inquiry-based format where the kids' questions and natures seasonal changes are the inspiration for nature walks, games, stories, and hands-on experiences with "nature's toybox".
