Cher sang it best! If I could turn back time, if I could find a way….I’d enroll my Pre-K in Forest Time TODAY! I am loving everything about this school, the outdoor education, organic vegan snacks, child-led learning and adult guidance, the incorporation of STEAM learning through play, etc.   I wish it was around when my kiddos were younger; I would have enrolled them in a heartbeat.  Not familiar with Forest Time Kindergarten?
