Would you send your kids to a Forest School?

It’s not a full time school, our kids go twice a week for 3 hours each day.

Have you heard of it? Is it something that interests you?

They have them by me- I couldn’t do it because I have to work full time and I hate being out in the rain!

Dd goes to a Waldorf school and a lot of their lessons are outside. So if it was similar yes.

We have some charter schools around here. I know there is one that is 3 days a week, 5 hrs. Another elementary that is 4 days a week.

I would do whatever my child needed. I knew my 5 yr old wasn't ready for traditional kinder in public school, so he is in a private kinder that uses a homeschool program. I believe he will be ready for 1st in our public school next year, but if he isn't, then we will look to see where he would benefit the best.

It depends on the day. Some days we do lessons from home and other days we go on field trips.

If I felt he would learn the things I think he needs to learn. We are outside all the time especially on the weekends. Climbing trees, playing in the creek, hiking, finding treasures etc.
