Education today can be as wide and varied as the family is imaginative. At River's Edge Forest Play we believe education and learning are unique to the child and should "come" when the child is ready, not pushed, rushed or mandated. We are pleased to be able to offer a tutorial program that enhances learning. Our FORESTtutorial is 100% nature immersed, play based, child-led, inquiry-driven, environmentally focused and tailored to the developmental needs of each child. We believe when a child connects with nature they connect with self and will care for this beautiful resource.

This is River's Edge Forest Play. This is nature immersion. 

A nature immersion program designed to nurture children through nature play.
