WEEKLY HOMESCHOOL GROUP
We will be running a weekly homeschool group. Our foundational principles and social emotional focus will be key components of this program. There will be integration with programming and children who are in our full time homeschool co-op program as well.
Days: Weekly, Wednesday (or possibly Fridays, depends on interest)

Our Weekly Homeschool Group is an extension of our nature immersion early education program that we hold throughout the school year, for children ages 5-12 years of age.
