Thrive Forest School Now Enrolling

Thrive Forest School Now enrolling for 2024-2025! It’s Louisville’s first nature-based preschool, nestled in the beautiful woodlands of Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve. They have removed the walls and brought child-led, exploratory learning to where it makes the most impact: outside.

Forest schools (also known as “forest kindergartens”) have been well established for over 50 years and are among the fastest-growing models in early childhood education. Why? Because they work. Development and learning are enhanced when children are given the space and confidence to follow their curiosities, engage with peers, stimulate all senses, and test their limits. This fosters a love of learning which will serve them well beyond primary school and into their adult lives.
