Nourished in Nature forest school encourages the love of nature in all children, big and small. We are homeschooling parents leading a Waldorf and Charlotte Mason-inspired, child-centered, nature-based learning program for children in the mountains of East Tennessee. Our focus is on guiding children to live more in touch with their own nature and their roots, in the natural world. We help facilitate innate qualities of mindfulness, exploration, wonder, and curiosity while building a strong community. Our mission and goal is to respect each child’s inner being to help them flourish into their true selves. We meet once per week for children and families. We’ve seen remarkable benefits in mixed-age play and see how children thrive and grow in such an environment.

We're living in times where getting back to our roots is important.

Children love to explore and learn about foraging, plant identification, nature based art, handicrafts and so much more. We offer all of this and more for the children and families in our community at our forest school.

"Encourage your child to have muddy, grassy or sandy feet by the end of each day, that’s the childhood they deserve.” ~Penny Whitehouse
