  2. Forest Play School (unfinished rough cut)

    Following a successful European example, the Forest Play School was a pilot program for a year-round outdoor preschool. For six years, many children attended the half-day program in a small park district forest on Chicago's north side. It was forced to shut down in 2019 because the park district would not continue sponsoring FPS due to regulatory conflicts.

    Parents and teachers who loved Forest Play School for their children's development are hoping to modify Illinois daycare law to allow provisions for education outside the confines of four walls.

    Forest schools, successfully implemented in Washington state, are becoming popular because of the myriad skills and qualities they instill in children.
