I'm working to create a forest kindergarten-style program in the North Vancouver area, three mornings a week at farm and forest locations and parent participation (partial). If we have enough students, this will debut in the fall. Otherwise, we'll work on partnerships and create a pilot program in the spring, with a full program next fall. It's for children ages 4 1/2-6 (when they start, anyway).

I'm putting the finishing touches on the web site, brainstorming ways to make this more affordable, and most importantly...looking for board members! If you'd like to help build this or just want to stay in the loop, please let me know, either here or through a PM.

It's meant to be a complement to an existing homelearning program.

Just wondering how the plan to set up your forest kindergarten has come along? Is it up and running?

Hi. We currently live in NYC where we participate in a forest nursery with our almost 3 year old son. It was started by a local mom. It meets three days a week in Central Park and is FREE. We parents work collectively, share food, etc. We are moving to Vancouver at the end of May and I would love to join a similar group there. So far, the Forest Kindergarten listed here is the only one I have found. It sounds wonderful but because it is only open to older children we want to find or start something for the younger children. If any parents out there are interested in getting together with each other for a forest nursery experience, please let me know. I'd love to coordinate something together.
