Public Screening of 'School's Out: Lessons from a Forest Kindergarten'

Friday, October 18, 2019, 11:30 PM - 1:30 AM

Join the Children’s Forest of Central Oregon for a film screening of School’s Out: Lessons from a Forest Kindergarten (2013). The 36-minute film follows children 4 to 7 years of age in Switzerland, who attend kindergarten in the woods every day, no matter what the weatherman says. This eye-opening film shines a light on the importance of free play and healthy risk-taking for young children. The film will be followed by a panel discussion about what parents, educators, and health care providers in Central Oregon can do to promote the messages in the film in our community.

Panelists Include:
Dr. Rebecca Hicks: Pediatrician, Mosaic Medical
Rae Alberg: Founder and Teacher, Bend Forest School
Mary Dean: Kindergarten Teacher, Elk Meadow Elementary School
