An excellent alternative to traditional K1 or K2
Did you know that BOPN has a forest kindergarten option? Our afternoon session is a mixed age group, typically 4-7 year olds, and is an excellent alternative to traditional K1 or K2 programs. While many families have turned to forest kindergarten programs due to COVID-19 and wanting to keep their children and family members as safe as possible, people are also realizing the immense benefits that their children are gaining from this method of education, including child-led learning, kindergarten and first grade readiness skills, nature connection, mindfulness, resiliency, and the benefits of a mixed-age setting.
“By month three her teacher said she was leading the class in following routines and truly loved learning.”
