The program is offered is 45 weeks long, including 34 instructor-led class days, field trips and other club days. In our Waldorf style these classes will be taught in “blocks” that explore a theme and related materials. Students are broken into multi-graded groups. This enrichment program targets children who are in Kindergarten through 8th. Parents who would like to participate as a class volunteer may sign up to do so but participation is not required. See the Fees to Register Page for pricing and schedule.
Curricula for Morning Subject Blocks will intertwine so that key concepts are reinforced. This class will focus on Art, Science, Language Arts/Literature and Focus Studies (a mindful approach to social-emotional topics, history, math concepts and social studies). Each class subject is 2 hours long and one subject is taught for a 4-week block. For example Language Arts is taught for 4 weeks then the class rotates to Focus Studies for 4 weeks and then to Science and then to Art. Each subject will be taught twice through the program.
Classes do not assign homework. 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.
