Kings County Forest School is Brooklyn's first and only sliding scale forest program aiming to provide all families the opportunity to learn and experience nature in our otherwise urban environment, Our program's philosophy is inspired by the belief that all young children have the innate capacity to wonder, create, and develop their gifts through self-directed play and time in nature.
Getting outside benefits children and their caregivers with the incredible experience of nature-based exploration in the convenience of "Brooklyn's back yard", Prospect Park.
Current offerings include:
Weekday parent-child classes with a limited number of drop off slots
Weekly after school programs
Saturday parent-child classes are available to encourage working families to step outside with their children.
