Brooklyn Forest


Brooklyn Forest enriches the lives of families throughout New York City by offering Waldorf-inspired classes in Prospect Park for young children and their caregivers. We want your child’s first class to be filled with wonder.

Registration is open for our Spring 2013 season, which begins on March 4 and ends on June 14.

Class Description
Our parent-child classes meet once a week and take place entirely outdoors. Most of the children who attend forest school are between six months and four years old, and every class has a mix of these ages.

Each class meets near a park entrance then proceeds with a walk to a forest classroom. The children follow their own imaginations as they play and work -- they make mud pies, dig for worms, race across meadows, seesaw on a couple of crisscrossed logs and help to build a small teepee from branches and silk. After child-led play, we wash hands and sit down for a picnic of freshly baked bread, apple slices and berry tea. After snack, we walk together into the woods to explore and look for wildlife. We end each class with a short circle time, when we gather for seasonal songs, nursery rhymes and finger plays.

Penny and the Puppettes


Join Penny and the Puppettes as we embark on our amazing journey of music and make believe!

We find that music often paired with visual stimulation is the best combination for engaging young minds and inspiring creativity. Our classes are action packed! We do circle time, singing (accompanied by ukulele, guitar and/or keyboard), movement, rhythms and percussion, Story-time with our Mini-Puppet Theater, and more. Each week the children get to use a puppet that connects to the theme of that day. We introduce the kids to a wide variety of music including contemporary, classical, and live.

Besides new and exciting moments every class, we instill familiarity with our songs and our special guests (lovable, talking-singing, Muppet-type puppets) whom the children get to know and look forward to seeing. Sam the Dog, Squiggy the Pop-up Puppet, and Captain Traptain the Pirate are among a few of the kids' favorites.

Our message is clear- finding fun through music and imagination while promoting kindness and compassion, whether it be towards the child sitting next to yours or the shy puppet Charlie whom the kids help feel loved.

Winter Semester includes a CD, Illustrated Songbook, and Penny and the Puppettes bracelet!
