Walnut Grove Coop is a secular, inclusive, nonprofit educational organization serving PreK-8th and high school students in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. We are a cooperative group of families who may not send their children to traditional schools. We provide opportunities to our children and adults 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 for PreK-8th. We offer an Integrated Design High School program customized per learner. We encourage leadership, connection in nature, and self-directed learning. We have a weekly meeting to provide a social outlet for parents and children. We meet in Newark, Delaware.
Provide a stable and consistent learning environment where alternative learners can build a strong community, connect with nature-based education, perform service projects, and support self-education.
It is the intention of this group to foster leadership skills among our adults and children, encourage self-reliance, promote an inclusive but secular environment, practice mindfulness, and teach diversity.
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.
Homeschool Parent Participation:
Parent participation is essential to the overall success of our homeschool programs. Parents contribute to planning programs, hiring staff, offering field trips and other meet-ups. Parents are welcome but not expected to lead educational activities such as clubs.
