Early Childhood Education…in Nature!
We offer two regularly occurring programs based on the forest kindergarten pedagogy:
Our flagship program is a drop-off, half-day forest kindergarten based on the cooperative preschool model. Children ages 3-6 enroll on a semester or yearly basis. Their parent chooses the level of volunteer commitment that fits their family and tuition varies accordingly.
We also provide AFK Playgroup as a weekly outreach offering to the community. AFK Playgroup is a drop-in opportunity for children ages 2-7 and their caregivers. All children deserve to experience the benefits of play, socialization, and inquiry-based learning in nature. AFK Playgroup and our other outreach programs help make AFK accessible and inclusive to all in our community.
