Class & Enrollment
In 2018 -2019, we will have three cohorts at the Forest Freedom School.
Juniper | ages 2-3 Birch | ages 2-5 Sequoia | ages 5+
We will continue to add a cohort level each year. Our vision is to grow into a school community with children 2-10 years old.
Please note that students do not need to be toilet trained to join the program! As an inclusive program, we know that each child develops on their own timeline and will support them in their path to toileting independence!
