The opportunities for thoughtful and unrestricted play and discovery are all too brief in childhood. In FSMN we focus on bringing your child into the whole hearted joys of daily discoveries, wonder, and imagination. They will learn, play, and collaborate with peers in a thoughtful and inclusive environment, free of competition and stress. All preschool age children attend The Forest School of Minnesota year around for a minimum of two years. Research studies in the UK ( link below), acknowledge the positive impact children gain in long term nature immersion participation.  Forest School educated children show the greatest strides in development when the children have attended for two or more years. The participation in Nature Immersion Forest School MN bring about the many skills in our students that provide of optimal future learning, including advanced abilities in leadership, critical thinking, exemplary social skills and collaboration skills that will be essential throughout their lives.
