Schools Out: Forest Kindergarten is a documentary about children 4 to 7 years of age who go to kindergarten in the woods every day. This eye-opening film follows the forest kindergarten through the seasons of one school year and looks into the important question of what it is that children need at that age. It’s a combination of pure observational footage of the children at kindergarten in the forest, paired with interviews with parents, teachers, child development experts, and alumni, offering the viewers a genuine look into the forest kindergarten.
After the film, facilitators and those attending will discuss the film and it’s concept.
Here’s a sneak peak and what can be expected.
