Morning Homeschool Classes

Spring is one of the best seasons to get outside and explore. In April, salamanders and frogs are laying their eggs in vernal pools. As we roll into May, trees begin to unfurl their leaves and pollinators visit flowers in field and forest, while snakes and turtles start to bask in the sun. Our spring homeschool sessions will focus on these seasonal changes and observing the animals that have arisen from their winter slumber.

As we know, temperatures can fluctuate dramatically in spring. Please dress your children in layers so we can add and remove layers as necessary. Spring is also mud season, so boots or shoes that can get dirty 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.
