Mon Redbuds (ages 5-6)

$1,490

with Ms. Mary

Calendar Sep 5, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 26 weeks

Monday 

Fall: Sep 12-Nov 21 with Nov 28 as a make up date

Winter: 12:00pm-2:00pm, Jan 9-Feb 20, afternoons

March is for maple tapping, sap collecting, and winter make up days

Spring: Apr 10-May 22 with May 29 as a make-up date

 

With an emphasis on outdoor, imaginative play and exploration, students begin to show independence in the Redbuds class. Students feel safe in their beautiful forest classroom and slowly adventure farther along the trail as the year progresses. Every class follows a predictable routine. We begin each day with a soft start, where students are welcome to come anytime between 10:00-10:30 for free play in our outdoor classroom space. We then gather together for opening circle with song, stories, and snack. We like to play nature-connection games, expanding our senses and awareness of nature all around us. Then we go on our themed adventure or investigation, exploring along our nature loop. As students hike uneven terrain, climb, and balance on stones, they develop gross motor skills. Lunch includes more free play in our classroom that includes a mud kitchen, giant weaving loom, slackline, obstacle course, and ever-changing loose parts. Students come back together for nature journaling time. We close each class with story and song around the fire circle. Our day ends with a soft close, and parents are welcome to pick up anytime between 1:30 and 2:00. This allows flexibility for students to be outdoors for the amount of time that works best for their personal development, between 3-4 hours.

 

Payment plan available: $50 deposit plus 6 payments of $205.71, paid weekly. Final payment of $205.74.

Mon Sprouts Parent/Child (ages 2-6)

$600

with Ms. Sarah

Calendar Sep 5, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 22 weeks

Monday Mornings 10:00 am-12:30 pm

Fall: Sep 12-Nov 21 with Nov 28 as a make-up date

Spring: Apr 10-May 22 with May 29 as a make-up date

 

Classes encourage students to connect within themselves and to the earth, their peers and their parent. Emphasis is on imaginative free play, curiosity, and social awareness. We begin each class with a soft start, where families are welcome to join us for free play between 10:00-10:30. Our beautiful outdoor classroom space includes a mud kitchen, giant weaving loom, slackline, obstacle course, and ever-changing loose parts. Each class follows a similar rhythm: free play, opening circle with yoga, sensory awareness activities and music. Then we move into our adventure portion of the day, where students hike their special nature loop. We gather together for snack and story, more imaginative play, nature journaling, and closing circle around the fire. As students hike uneven terrain, climb, and balance on tones, they develop gross motor skills. Parents connect with other families of similar values and develop relationships that often extend outside of class time. Sharing discoveries and learning from one another develops our sense of community.

Babies are always welcome at no additional cost. This is a parent/child course- parents, guardians, or caretakers are expected to attend class with their child to learn and grow together.

Students will have time for exploration, social interaction, and creative/imaginative play with a themed nature study each week. Every class follows a predictable routine. We will begin each morning with free play and then gather together for opening circle with song, snack and stories. We like to play nature-connection games, expanding our senses and awareness of nature all around us. Then we go on our themed adventure or investigation, exploring along the trails, into the swamp, or along the lakeside. As students hike uneven terrain, climb, and balance on stones, they develop gross motor skills. After the adventure, we hike back to the fire circle for lunch and a time of sharing. In the afternoon we encourage more imaginative free play. Students will come back together for nature journaling time. We close each class with story and song around the fire circle. Sharing discoveries and learning from one another develops our sense of community.
