Secret Forest Playschool Fundraising for New Classroom

The Hands-On Learning School is Looking to Expand with a Cabin Classroom

The cold isn’t putting a damper on fundraising efforts for one Playschool in the Northland.

Secret Forest Playschool is now located in the Eastridge Community Church in Duluth.

Founder Meghan Morrow would like to expand her efforts with a new Cabin Classroom.

She opened the hands-on learning opportunity back in the fall of 2012, and has since helped dozens of young students learn by teaching everyday skills.

The classes go outside each day, preparing for the climate with layers of warm clothing.

Thursday morning was no exception, despite the subzero temperatures.

“The hope is that these kids and these families get outside year–round, feeling comfortable and confident in their environment. It’s a place that we build community and teach kids through experiences,” said Founder Meghan Morrow.

Eastridge Community Church has started construction on a new Cabin Classroom for Secret Forest, but more fundraising is needed. Right now, Morrow says they have raised over $16,000, four thousand dollars shy of their $20,000 goal.

“With the completion of the classroom cabin and customizing it, it will give Playschool a home seven day a week, which will make it permanent in this community,” said Morrow.
