Our Toddler Program is being offered in two month sessions. We are offering a morning program, 9AM - 11:45AM, two days per week for children 2-3 years of age with parent participation. We provide one opportunity for children to re-charge and nourish their bodies with a healthy snack, provided by us. To be able to individually support and connect with each child as necessary, we have a low student to teacher ratio of 3:1.

Taking after the parent co-op model, we are requiring parents to stay and support the session leader on a rotating basis.

 

Inspired by European model of Waldkindergartens (all outside, all weather, early childhood programs), we have created an inclusive nature immersion early childhood program that provides children with the opportunity for adult supported uninterrupted and unstructured play time in nature. This closeness to the natural world and exposure to minimal risk supports a young child’s mental and physical health as well as problem solving skills, social-emotional learning, sensory, motor and cognitive development.

 

As a place-based program, children continually discover their “classroom” as the seasons and environments change throughout the year.
