Dear Parents,

We are fortunate to have our nearby forest as a Third Teacher for our students. Being in the forest surrounded by nature, children experience an ever-changing and free-flowing environment that stimulates all the senses. Outside play in the forest through different seasons whatever the weather fosters children’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical development.

Unfortunately last Wednesday our Pre-K students were not able to have their first rain-in-the-forest experience, due to a lot of students being unprepared for the weather. Our apologies to those students and parents that were all equipped.

Can we please ask All The Parents to make sure your child has Rain Gear in school every Wednesday, as it is important for his/her learning. Waterproof jacket, pants and rain boots are essential for your child to enjoy the encounter with nature.

Starting Wednesday, October 10th, there would be no cancellation of The Forest Trips due to rain.

Thank you in advance for your collaboration,

The Pre-K  Team
