Ology Assembly – Unschool Coop Day:
This group meets on Fridays from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. It is family-friendly — all ages welcome. A facilitator will lead children in the exploration of a self-directed group project time for the first half of the day each week. This is generally referred to as our unschool option and leverages a democratic process to elicit and execute the ideas of the participants. Learn more about our Unschool Program >>
Parents and volunteers may lead any club they desire and can invite other members to attend for free (or with fees to cover material costs). Club time will be offered Friday from 9am-10:15am and again from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
