Ages 3.5 - 4 by September 1st
The Huckleberries program is designed to honor the interests of children first and foremost. With loving guidance from experienced teachers, students are encouraged to play, climb, dig, build and get dirty. This class includes songs, games, yoga, a short hike and plenty of free play and exploration every day.
Rain or shine, the children in our program enjoy the ever-changing adventure that the forest provides and they gain many foundational life skills and tools: resiliency, empathy, understanding of self, others and nature, self-regulation, curiosity, confidence, growth mindset, mindfulness, stewardship, love of learning, critical thinking skills and a foundation of nature connection that will last them a lifetime.
This is a 100% outdoor forest program. We have fun no matter what the weather! As the saying goes, "There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing". During the winter months and on really rainy days, we provide a shelter (tent/tarp shelter) and warm tea time so that our campers will have a dry space to play, learn and warm up!
