Forest Kindergarten at
Red Bank Elementary
Red Bank Elementary will be starting the first Forest
Kindergarten of its kind in the state of Tennessee. The program,
being developed by experienced early childhood teachers, is modeled
after successful forest/nature school programs across the globe.
The Forest Kindergarten at Red Bank will be offered free of cost to
kindergarten students in the Red Bank Elementary school zone and
will meet rigorous state standards using a custom-designed hybrid
of the original model and developmentally appropriate early
childhood teaching methods. Children enrolled in the program will
spend half of the instructional day outdoors, exploring the natural
environment. While outside, students will be building social and
communication skills; further develop gross and fine motor skills,
engage in spontaneous STEAM learning, and have the opportunity to
explore creative expression.
