With an emphasis on outdoor, imaginative play and exploration, students begin to show independence as Explorers. 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.
