Playful Outdoor Learning Opportunities
You get to choose the days of the week that work for you!
Mon, Tues, Fri. Learning through play, curiosity, observation and experimentation, making art, gardening, and wildcrafting. We develop environmental awareness through observation and by following daily (solar), monthly (lunar), and seasonal rhythms and celebrations to connect to the cycles and wisdom of nature. Our curriculum is nature-based and child-led - we customize it to meet each child's unique needs with space and encouragement for them to follow their individual interests. Like all of our programs, The Nature Creativity classes have an emphasis on self-awareness, compassionate communication, gratitude, and respect for self, others, and the natural world.
Wild Ones Weekly
Wednesdays with specialty teacher Charissa Waters. Wild Ones Weekly is an opportunity for children, and by extension, families, to experience and appreciate their wild spirits. Humans crave a practical understanding of our capacity to live in the natural world. Little Wild Ones are encouraged to cultivate compassion, courage, and cooperative innovation. Plant identification, basic survival skills, nature-based seasonal songs, creative stories, cooperative games, and play make up the unique Wild Ones curriculum. Children in this group recognize and celebrate their authentic expression, as they witness and help each other grow more capable and strong!
Yoga, Dance & Music Makers
Thursdays with specialty teacher Amy Flynn. Come join us for Movement, Music, and Play! In addition to our nature and child-led play, we will also be creating space for Kids Yoga, Dance, Acrobatics, and Expressive Arts. Through these classes, we will be building important tools that children can carry with them including increased body awareness, strength and flexibility, and self-calming/emotional regulation skills. This will be an amusing exploration of music and movement with percussion instruments, juggling scarves, yoga storytelling, and more!
