As children go back to school, there is a new option for kids ages 3 to 6 in the Madison area — head to the woods. Mighty Seeds Forest School, located in Door Creek Park on Madison’s east side, is an early childhood education program that spends 100 percent of the time outside (there is an alternative location with shelter in case of severe weather). Mighty Seeds opened in June for summer sessions and will offer fall sessions beginning September 3.
Mighty Seeds was founded by Nina Bricko and Stephanie Fitch, both mothers of young children. Bricko and Fitch believe that early childhood is an important time for kids to develop a relationship with the natural world.
