Our Painted Turtle program has a max ratio of 6 students to 1 facilitator.  This small class size allows students to spend  most of the day exploring and discovering all of the wonders, big and small. Learning to work together,  cultivating their connection with nature in fun and engaging ways, the Painted Turtles are active agents in their own learning! They partake in developmentally appropriate activities and adventure, engage in “risky play” and learn how to assess their own risks independently.  It’s a good day to be a Painted Turtle!

As our older students, we look to them as leaders at FNS and work hard on developing socio-emotional, physical and cognitive skills in a nature-based setting.  Snowy Owls dive deeper into themes of ecological and environmental literacy, risky play, and develop a pretty unique set of new outdoor skills! Just ask to borrow their natural hammer or homemade spoon!
