Helping Children to Become Stewards of the Earth
Oro Medonte Forest School’s mission is to create an educational community that fosters rich, experiential learning, age appropriate ecological literacy, and promotes healthy living by connecting children to nature through the use of a local Forest School model in the foundational early years.
Our Vision is to provide children with frequent opportunities to play and learn in local forests, meadows, wetlands and gardens with an educator who understands the power of play and child-directed learning. Our hope is that children will develop a strong sense of self, a healthy connection to the land and community, and will become the next generation of environmental stewards who can contribute to a more sustainable world.
