Willow Creek Forest School is an outdoor, place-based kindergarten for children ages 3-5 in SW Portland. The school runs for nine months, from September to June, Tuesday through Friday from 9:30am-1:30pm, with an option to add aftercare each day until 3pm. We are located at Tryon Life Community Farm, a seven-acre sustainability education center and home to eight goats, five chickens and nineteen humans. The land is bordered on three sides by Tryon Creek State Park, where children spend part of each day hiking and playing among the old growth trees and ferns. The rhythms of the land guide each day and inspire our curriculum, stories and songs. Students enjoy a consistent daily rhythm in which they can allow their imaginations to blossom and be immersed in the magic of the forest, while learning to be good stewards to the land and each other.
