Forest Preschool


Ages 3-5

Wednesdays 8:30am - 12:30pm

at NorthernShire in Underhill

Fall Session:

Wednesdays September 21- December 14, 2022

Special Events:

Saturday, October 22 (weather dependent): Students and families

are welcome to join us for our Community Day work party

December 15: Come to our Winter Spiral celebration with all forest

school families.

Julia will teach the program with support from a teen apprentice and volunteers. We have decided to keep it very small with only 5 children (including Awasos!).

We ask for a commitment from families from September - December at which point we will reassess and offer spaces to you for Spring semester. We would like to allow for things to unfold and see if we end up finding a good teacher that can expand the program for that semester. 


Cost for Fall session: $600. Scholarships available.

If interested, contact Julia at



The program will aim to be mainly outdoors. We will have a daily rhythm.

Our days will include:

  • Free imaginative play and exploration both in the forest and in the play area near the buildings

  • Music making and circle time activities

  • Building a fire in our woods camp

  • Cooking over the fire

  • Nature related crafts and art

  • Story time

  • Games
