Thrive Forest School is Louisville’s most successful nature-based preschool, nestled in the beautiful woodlands of Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve. There, under the trees and amongst the chirping of chickadees, children 3-to-6 years of age attend preschool outside in a forest classroom year-round. Sun, rain, snow… it’s all an opportunity to build self-confidence, creativity, resilience, and emotional regulation in small classes under the guidance of experienced preschool teachers
