Prairiewood Forest School
Through our year-round Forest School classes for ages 2-17, we offer playful, inquiry-led immersion opportunities for children and youth to connect with community, personal creativity, and the natural world. Each class session starts at Prairiewood, our Outdoor Classroom, and may also involve time with our farm animals, prairie wildflowers, garden, pond, and forested trails.

All 2021 classes are full. Please click below to see our Winter classes, which run from January through March:
You can see photos and stories from past and current classes below as well as on our school Instagram and Facebook page, and can help us support more students in benefiting from Forest School by sponsoring a student scholarship here.
Please write LoriAnn@stfrancisofthewoods.org with any questions about our Forest School classes and other nature-based programming.
Enrolling parents & guardians: To hold your spot, you'll need to read our school Handbook here and e-mail us a returned copy of the final page (I recommend using an app like PDF viewer) by a week after enrolling and a week before class begins, whichever is sooner.
