TODDLER FOREST SCHOOL PLAYGROUP
9:30 am to 12 pm
September 15th - November 17th
With a mix of environmental exploration and self-directed play, this drop-off class gently introduces toddlers to learning as a group through independent exploration, social play, nature immersion and lightly structured activities such as process art, story time and group snack. Through outdoor play they will learn to negotiate and cooperate with peers, expand their gross and fine motor skills, and build the foundations for early literacy.
Classes are for older 1s up to young 3s and 4s. Older and younger toddlers will take part in a mixed age group--stretching their abilities by learning from older ones and honing their leadership skills by guiding younger ones. Each class is limited to four students and takes place all outdoors in Sunset Park, under the facilitation of trained playworkers.
In the case of inclement weather, or if we must close temporarily due to COVID, toddler classes will be cancelled and make-up classes will be offered at a date and time selected by Brooklyn Wild. Please read our full COVID safety policy.
There is a once-per-school-year, non-refundable registration fee of $80 per student for new families.
Siblings who register together receive a 5% discount.
