“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, we must allow them to fall in love with the earth before we ask them to save her.”
Child Directed Exploration
Play Based, Experiential
Connection to Land and Community
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 the 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 educators who understand 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 recognize the importance of contributing to a more intersectional, sustainable world.
