Our Programs

We believe in the importance of mixed- age classes. Learning to work constructively with others of different abilities prepares students for adult life, and builds relationships that last a lifetime!



Our youngest students, ages TK and K, have the opportunity to direct their own learning and play in a beautiful and natural prepared environment, both in and outdoors. They practice choice making, motor skills, and courtesy toward others, all while building a strong foundation in math, reading and writing.

Lower Elementary

Students ages 6-9 focus on learning about our world through experiences and crafts in nature, practicing outdoor skills, and study of botany, zoology, and geology.  They also explore cultures of the world through in-depth continent unit studies.
