Students explore, learn and play in Forest Kindergarten
- Published: May 4, 2016
As the 2015–16 school year heads into its final month, the Kindergarten group at Antioch School has succeeded in beginning every school week exploring, playing and learning out-of-doors. They call it Forest Kindergarten.
Part laboratory, part playground, the overgrown grove is lined with well-worn paths that circle around to a central spot where sitting logs are arranged around a fire pit and an old tarp is tied between the trees for shelter. Here, the children gather with their teacher, Lindie Keaton, to eat, tell stories and learn about themselves and the world.
