We are a cooperative group of families who do not send their children to traditional schools. We provide opportunities to our children to learn in a respectful, inclusive, secular community through fun classes and meaningful experiences. We offer homeschool enrichment programs based on the Waldorf-style of learning. We also have a weekly meeting to provide a social outlet for parents and children. We meet in Newark, Delaware.

Our Mission:

Provide a stable and consistent learning environment where homeschooling and unschooling families meet in a central location to offer both guided and self-led activities.

Our Values:

It is the intention of this group to foster leadership skills among our parents and children, encourage self-reliance, promote an inclusive but secular environment, and teach diversity.

Membership:

Walnut Grove Coop is open to anyone who can make the commitment to work together with other co-op members to create meaningful, fun experiences for our children and ourselves.

Parental Participation:

Parent participation is essential to the overall success of the coop. Parents contribute to planning programs, hiring staff, offering field trips and other meet-ups. Parents are welcome but not expected to lead educational activities.
