Week by Week

Each week at Forest Play we will focus on playing, exploring and learning specific skills. We have created a curriculum guide that is flexible depending on the group. Our weekly learning stories will provide the details of our learning goals and evidence of what happened and what will happen next. Two main themes guide our time together:

Who We Are: Understanding ourselves and each other can help build community

How We Express Ourselves: Exploring creative ways to express our feelings, ideas and stories
