Forest Friends 


Get your preschool and kindergarten-aged kids moving, exploring, and having fun in the outdoors! We are so thrilled to offer this new program in partnership with the City of Coeur d'Alene Recreation Department.


Forest Friends is a school-year recreation program for 4-6 year olds that is all-outdoors and all-seasons. It is a wonderful complement to half-day preschool or kindergarten or for younger homeschoolers. We follow a curriculum using best practices for Forest Kindergartens, as well as literacy-based activities.

Parents can drop children off at the program, sign up to be a regular volunteer for a $15 per session credit to use towards the next program session, or just join in for the fun whenever they'd like.

All classes take place at McEuen park in Coeur d'Alene, Tuesday and Thursday Mornings.

Parent volunteers are necessary to ensure the safety of the program! Please contact Laura if you are interested or note your interest when registering at City Hall. Program credits of $15 per class are available for volunteers to offset the cost of your child's next month!!

Try your first class (parent & child) for free to see if this is for you!

More questions? Download our Parent Manual and Suggested Clothing List, or email us!

Update: No Parent info meetings.


Cost: $120 per month. No make-ups or refunds available as this is a continuous month-to-month program.

*All registration will take place through the City of Coeur d'Alene recreation department (must be done in person at their city hall location). You can email us or call the Recreation department to check on availability. A wait list will form for those interested once spots have been filled. The Recreation department is on the lower level of City Hall, 710 E Mullan Ave, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814.

Monthly sessions for January - May 2020 are also in the works! More to come!
