Forest School at Scanlon Creek

Every week brings something new as children aged 4 to 6 years old guide daily activities with their interests and curiosities.

Each session is filled with wonder as children explore, build and play in Scanlon Creek’s forests, meadows and wetlands. They experience hands-on and child-directed learning that is unhurried and supported as we explore the natural world together.​
