Flatwoods Forest School was founded in 2018. We are three moms on a mission to create an alternative education program that provides a rich environment for childhood development. We are a completely outdoor nature based program serving St. Johns and Flagler County children ages 3-6. We are located at the Florida Agriculture Museum, where there are 460 acres of land to explore. The Agriculture Museum provides a unique opportunity for students to learn with historical buildings, living history, cattle, sheep, horses and native long leaf pine habitat.
