What is Forest School, and why are we doing it?
A New Concept in Knoxville
For centuries, countries all over the world have been pursuing the concept of forest schools, in order to start the educational journey for children in a place of wonder, curiosity and collaboration. It is a relatively new concept in the United States. It began out West and in the Northeast and has moved to our area. At Knox Forest School are proud to be Knoxville’s first forest school program. We are currently moving into our third year of operation.
Interest Led Flow of Learning
Forest school is an early learning model that instills in students the vitally important soft skills for their journey through life:
Curiosity, Collaboration, Connection
Risk Assessment, Problem Solving and Resilience (Grit!)
