After School Care

2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

We offer a licensed after school care program to local elementary students, K - age 9.  The classroom is designed to promote concentration and calmness, and be a home away from home where children receive tutoring from teachers and peers, deepen friendships, and develop a lifelong love of learning. We have a dedicated homework time, plenty of time to play outside.  Our children immerse themselves in nature through animal care, gardening, and exploration.

Play School is ideal for homeschool and hybrid-school families, and for those wishing to supplement their child's home life with some structured, positive peer interaction.  The program includes a balanced snack, an uninterrupted 3-hour work cycle with outdoor time and lunch or a snack together.

Lower & Upper Elementary

8:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Lower Elementary is for children 6 – 9 years old. Rather than confining learning to single “grade years,” learning is spread over the course of 3 years based upon natural cycles of interest and development.  For example, a 1st Year student may be learning “3rd grade” material because she is ready and interested, while a 3rd Year student might explore “2nd grade” material, per his unique learning timetable.

 

Upper Elementary is for children 9 – 12 years old. Program fees rise based upon the increasingly specific project expenses of individual student pursuits. Upper Elementary is about learning through experience and contextual relationships, rather than dissemination of isolated facts from a pre-selected curriculum. Students enjoy our 9-acre campus and a calming classroom that hones concentration. Options for before and after-school programs at a minimal rate.
