Daily activities

Designed to help children realize their potential

Morning Time

Children will begin their day playing outside and catching up with their friends at drop-off. Then we will transition to whole group lessons that consist of nature study, Spanish, Artist Study, Composer Study and a fun thematic read aloud.

The Basics

Each child will be placed in an educational group based on their academic needs. In the afternoon we will work on reading and math skills as will as incorporate a lot of literature based studies such as Shakespeare, Pilgrim’s Progress and Trial and Triumph for the older students.

Outdoor Exploration

Inquiry-based learning is happening on a constant bases because a child’s inclination to question warrants further examination. So while we are outside playing and helping tend to the garden and chickens, children are allowed to ask as many questions as they want and then we can learn through books and online research from those thought provoking questions.

More than just a joyful place
