    Hi, Does anyone know the status of licensing outdoor nature-based preschools across the country? I have been following their growth from Scandinavia through Europe. However, am not sure what is happening here regarding changes to licensing mandates. 
    Thank you, Marisa Folse Tehachapi, CA

    Washington State recently started a pilot program to license Forest preschools in their state. A few of us working in outdoor schools or interested in advocating for them here in Oregon are looking to use Washington's example to lobby the state to also explore licensing for Forest schools.
