Play-based Outdoor Education from 9 am to 1 pm Mon-Fri
You get to choose the days of the week that work for you!
Mon, Wed, and Fri with teachers Conner and Shayden. Learning through play, curiosity, observation, experimentation, exploring nature, making art, gardening, and wildcrafting. We develop environmental awareness through observing nature and asking questions and celebrating the seasons to connect to the cycles and wisdom of nature. Our curriculum is nature-based and child-centered. 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 emphasize self-awareness, compassionate communication, gratitude, and respect for self, others, and the natural world.
Music & Movement
Tuesdays with teachers Greg and Charissa. Children learn how to make music and move their bodies with dance, yoga, and movement for children, and by extension, families, to experience and appreciate their incredible minds, bodies, and wild spirits. Humans crave a practical understanding of our capacity to create and move in the natural world. Little Wild Ones are encouraged to cultivate compassion, courage, and collaborative innovation. Rhythm time, nature-based seasonal songs, creative stories, music, cooperative games, dance, and play make up the unique Music & Movement Day curriculum. Children in this group recognize and celebrate their authentic expression, as they witness and help each other grow more capable, creative, and confident!
Yoga & Dance
Thursdays with teachers Amy and Charissa. Similar to Tuesday's curriculum, in addition to our nature-based activities, such as plant and animal identification, books, and storytelling, we will create space for kids' yoga, dance, acrobatics, and expressive arts. We build essential life skills that children can carry with them into adulthood, including increased body awareness, strength and flexibility, and self-calming and emotional regulation skills. This is a playful, emergent, and amusing exploration of music and movement with percussion instruments, juggling scarves, yoga, singing, and more!
