Willow Creek Forest School is TLC Farm's outdoor, place-based kindgarten for children 3-5 years old. Visit WillowCreekForestSchool.org for more information about enrolling in the 2018-2019 school year. 
 
Children enjoy a consistent daily rhythm in which they can allow their imaginations to blossom and be immersed in the magic of the forest, while learning to be good stewards to the land and each other. The flow of the day includes: crafts, homesteading skills, plant medicine-making, snack time provided by the school (including bread baked in the cob oven!), circle time, plenty of time in the forest and special festival days – all guided by songs and stories inspired by the changing seasons on the land. 
 
School runs for 9 months, Tuesday-Thursday from 9:30am-1:30pm, with an option to add aftercare each day until 3:00. Visit WillowCreekForestSchool.org for more information and to enroll. 
 
About Teacher Isobel: Isobel has been working with children in various settings for 12 years, and has been living on the land at TLC Farm for five years. For the past two years, she worked with Mother Earth School while dreaming about starting her own program. She loves sharing this magical land with children!
 
“Teacher Isobel is truly focused on your child(ren) in nature immersion. Isobel is a warm, generous teacher with a lot of stories, wild crafting, and nature immersion experience in Tryon. Your child deserves a nature immersion experience at least once in her/his life!” – Heather Saunders, parent
