Plan a Visit
Are you a prospective parent or an educator who would like to see the school in action? Or meet the teachers and see the Forest Playschool setting? Join us for a tour or an open house!
Tours are offered from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., usually on alternating fourth Mondays and Thursdays of every month, but see below for exact dates. A tour will give you the chance to see the school in action. However, in order to avoid the confusion of adding your child to the mix, we ask that no children attend tours (except infants who can be carried the entire time).
Open houses are offered quarterly on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. Children are welcome to attend. We will tour the site, and then the kids will be invited to play in our outdoor classroom. FPS staff and interns make themselves available for one-on-one conversation and answer any questions you might have.
We are delighted at the increasing interest from educators, and welcome your visits. To minimize disruption, we ask that you join a tour, below. If you would like a more in-depth learning experience, we will offer a teacher training in June 2019. Sign up to get details about the training as soon as they are finalized.
Where to Find Us
For both tours and open houses, we’ll meet in the front yard of the Peterson Park Field House. Please dress for a hike in the woods. Note, too, that using strollers, while allowed, is quite difficult given the terrain; if you can find another means of bringing in small children, we recommend it.
