Little Earth Forest School
Franchise Opportunity

Family Fishing Trip

Little Earth Forest School's ambition is to lead the shift toward transformative education that sees children as whole humans, with unique abilities,  and that can prepare them to lead the changes our world needs. 

Launched in 2020 by husband and wife Garrett and Barbara Smith, Little Earth Forest School is now serving children from 2 to 10 years old, and planning the extension all the way to 12 grade.

To reach as many children and communities as possible Little Earth is now opening franchising opportunities all over the US and abroad.

If you are a parent or a teacher or simply feel inspired to be part of this movement to give the youngest generations an alternative learning opportunity that  feeds the whole person, supports critical thinking and re-frames what successful education looks like, this may just be the opportunity you have been looking for.

Perfect Timing

Although forest schools have been around for decades, the post-pandemic world has seen a huge increase in demand for alternative education models that allow children to be more in contact with nature and focus on whole-child development. 

The current failing educational system has made its flaws more visible in the past few years continuing to fail to prepare children for the world.

Public schools have seen an unprecedented drop in enrollments,

as families are looking for alternative educational models. This is the perfect time to consider opening a Little Earth Franchise.

Turn Key Opportunity

Owning your own business may feel liberating or daunting, depending on the perspective. Our franchising opportunity allows you to own your business following a made-for-you model and with the support of a seasoned team that is not on your pay-roll.

We have removed the guess work from HOW TO and have created a turn-key business model that is lucrative as much as it is rewarding.

Everything is provided to you from training to curriculum to legal, marketing and administrative support. We support you in your hiring process, negotiating, outreach and of course teaching. 


Community plays a huge role in Little Earth's approach and ethos. Children learn in and with the community.

From locations to education community members are an essential contributing piece of Little Earth's success.

Every Little Earth school is deeply rooted in its community and draws from its community talent and advocacy.
