The Village Nest grew out of an immediate need and desire to keep our forest school, formerly at the Kittery Community Center, open during COVID.
At our new nest, our families and team are committed to supporting our children socialize and grow to their potential in the best learning environment possible: the forest. This also happens to be a safer environment to play and teach during COVID.
While we carry the same philosophy and many of the same practices, family and staff as we had at the Kittery Forest School, the Village Nest has moved to an entirely outdoor based model and added a K-1 microschool to address COVID realities. Our new format has been working so well we are continuing to grow.
