3 Day Classes

Our 3-Day classes in a small pod of multi-age children, a lead teacher, and assistant. Due to Covid guidelines, a majority of our class time will be outside ~ both on the renovated playground, and out in the meadow and trails surrounding our school.  Children should be potty trained prior to the start of school.

The class time includes:

  • Generous amount of time in which each child is encouraged to choose activities, explore, discover, touch, create, pretend, and relate to others.
  • Clean-up time: all pitch in and several have specific jobs to do.
  • Group time focusing on music and movement, conversation, stories, and problem solving.
  • Snack: Children bring their own.
  • Time for gross motor activities outdoors (or indoors when the weather doesn't cooperate.)
  • All activities are planned by the classroom teacher to stimulate social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth in your child.
  • Children will have opportunities to explore nature, follow their curiosity, and experience all that the outdoor world has to offer them.
