Our homeschool enrichment program uses unit studies and block-style scheduling. The classes offered in the morning are Art, Science, Language Arts/Literature and Focus Studies (a mindful approach to social-emotional topics, history, math concepts, and social studies). Each subject is explored for the 2 hour class period for 4 weeks. In the middle of each class, the group will go outside for Nature Observation. Full classes are also taught outside when conditions permit. Classes do not assign homework. Children are grouped in multi-graded sections.
Are you curious about what happens on a typical day? Check out these posts featuring each multi-graded group:
In the afternoon, you may choose to enroll in a Spanish class (offered to all grades/ages) or to enroll in our Skillful Play, which features Mindful Nature Art, Mind-Body Awareness/Training, Performance Arts and/or Public Speaking, and Gameschooling.
Children will keep a master record of all their work that you get to take home at the end of the year. Instructors will email weekly class summaries that explain what your child learned — these summaries are great resources to document your homeschooling progress.
We are now also offering virtual access to enrichment classes. We will send materials lists to parents in advance of lessons so that materials may be prepared by you for your child. Virtual sessions will consist of two 40-minute virtual meetings with a 10 minutue break in between.
