We are honored to be the first state-licensed Forest Kindergarten program accredited by The Cedarsong Way in Massachusetts!
Schools that are certified as Accredited Cedarsong Way Schools are verified in their commitment to The Cedarsong Way pedagogy including nature immersion and unstructured free play, flow learning, inquiry-based learning, child inspired documentation of the emergent curriculum, respect for others, self and the living earth, positive reinforcement, emphasis on individual empowerment and group bonding, exposure to moderate risk and low student to teacher ratios. Schools Accredited in The Cedarsong Way are proven to be operating at the same level of excellence as the original award winning and internationally recognized Cedarsong Nature School founded by Erin Kenny and Robin Rogers. Cedarsong Way Accreditation is an assurance of the best quality outdoor education program.
