Haven Forest Box

Haven Forest School created our hybrid-learning Forest School Box with the purpose of supporting and equipping families who are choosing to stay at home this year; offering their children a holistic and integrated outdoor learning experience.

 

We have thoughtfully designed our Forest Box to integrate weekly nature lessons in literature, poetry, science, nature notebooking, nature play, handwork, and kitchen time. Your monthly box includes everything you need for each week’s themed lesson including our WonderGuide, written and developed by our Forest School teachers.

HOW IT WORKS

Each month families collect their Forest Box filled with lesson plans, books, and materials for three to four weeks of outdoor nature learning.

 

Students join short weekly online lessons with Haven Forest School teachers in nature notebooking, stories, science, and an introduction to the week's Forest School box.

 

Families log in to the Haven@home online portal to access and complete the required weekly learning log.

The goal of Haven School is to cultivate a love of the good, true, and beautiful through purposeful teaching and practices in the natural world. Dedicated to forming a spirit of care and connection between children and nature, our school thrives through family participation and inspires the support of our community. Children are healthier and happier when given time and space to grow outdoors; developing a sense of wonder, empathy, courage, and creativity through intentional teaching and free play learning. Haven School is authorized by Education ReEnvisioned BOCES as a public homeschool enrichment program. 

At Haven we intentionally teach and follow the four following practices:

Wonder-Led Learning

Active Attention
