Morning Homeschool Classes

As our days grow longer and the snow and ice begin to melt, signs of spring begin to reveal themselves! During our March/April morning homeschool classes, we will take a closer look at the first plants and animals to wake up from their winter dormancy. We will investigate early spring plants like skunk cabbage and maple trees, learn about the first insects to emerge, and learn about our local birds and their songs. It may still be cold in late winter, but the promise of summer is on the horizon!

 

Due to the change in seasons, we will be putting a hold our our 4-6 year old class until spring. However, we will expand the age range for our winter class to 6-10 years old. Warm clothes make all the difference in winter; when it’s below 40F, please send your child in a warm jacket, snow pants (even if there is no snow on the ground), gloves, boots, and hat. Additional mittens/gloves are always recommended as they often get wet – synthetic or wool materials are recommended.

Our 6-10 year old classes are drop-off classes. However, if you would like to shadow the program you may. We just ask that you remain in the back of the class so that the students can be the focus of the program. These classes offer a blend of inquiry-based instruction, open exploration, wilderness skills, games, and activities.

Our 4-6 year old classes are drop-off optional. Parents are encouraged to attend if they are able, but it is not mandatory. These classes begin with a story that sets the stage for the morning’s explorations. The students then head out and explore through sensory-based activities and games. The morning is capped with a craft related to the day’s theme.
