Forest Schooling
California - Iowa - World


A human-centered approach that fosters and values all aspects that make us human: Creativity, Connections, Diversity, Self-Awareness, Purpose.

Little Earth Forest School is hands-on, project-based, and passion-based education. Children are learning by and while doing. Core academics such as English, Math, Science and Social Studies are woven in the project and are put into context. From farming to regenerative agriculture to foraging to archery to cooking and horsemanship to crafting, knitting, playing and story telling children learn knowledge, values and skills to address interconnected global challenges including climate change, loss of biodiversity, unsustainable use of resources, and inequality.

Children are by nature out-of-the-box thinkers, by moving the classes outdoor we have literally removed the box that curbs children's possibilities. In a traditional classroom everything is pre-determined for the child. The cubbies, the trays on each table, the signs on the walls. Children are “free” to experiment WITHIN the boundaries that have been set for them. Their learning experience has been premeditated and lies within those boundaries.

At Little Earth,  no experience is pre-determined for the children, who have a true opportunity to push the limits of what this experience can be or means to them.


Little Earth currently offers nature-based educational programs from preschool to 5th grade and has developed a proprietary curriculum ready all the way to high school.

Our interdisciplinary curriculum blends academics with hands-on learning, centered around observation in and participation with nature.

The students of Little Earth  grow with the land, plants, and animals who share our world.

We currently offer full time programs, homeschoolers/worldschoolers enrichment programs.
