The OMFS Forest Friday program offers an introduction to the forest school program. Caregivers and their child(ren) come prepared for a morning in the forest with the OMFS educators. Caregivers may join into the fun, or simply watch how the forest becomes an instrument in their children’s play. Educators will guide the children (and their adult!) through an exploration, but will stay true to our philosophy of following the children’s lead. This program is designed for children with a caregiver, ages 2-4 and babies in arms are always welcome. Contact us if your child is younger than 2 and you think this program may be a good fit.
Babies in arms are welcome with no cost.
Some program details:
