Forest Fridays for Homeschoolers
2022 Pilot Program

We hope you can join us!

We are excited to invite local homeschool students to join us for Forest Fridays! Our mixed-age kindergarten (ages 3-6) students spend every Friday exploring the natural world that surrounds our beautiful school in Marietta, PA. This is a wonderful opportunity for homeschool* students to receive purposeful socialization at a school that values nature-based education.

Open to students ages 3 - 6 years old. Please note this is a pilot program. 

If interested, please sign up for a free visiting day to ensure we're a good fit. 

What to Expect 

Forest Friday students enjoy taking long hikes, building forts and exploring nature's wonders at a nearby park. Children discover local plant and animal life and celebrate the joys of the world around them. A typical day includes a walk/exploration, imaginative play, story time, and a snack. The day is full of music, singing and movement. 

*this program is also open to children in part time schooling/childcare.
