Our goal for 2024Future K-8 School
We are raising funds to build a nature-based school in Naples, FL inspired by our homeschoolers. Check out our GoFundMe fundraiser below.
We Know How to Make Learning Fun For Kids
Our schedule allows families to chose how many days a week they want to participate. This gives parents the ability to teach their children what feels good to them, travel, and have 1-on-1 learning for strong family bonds. Each year, we create a community with our families and hope it lasts a lifetime. Along with the core curriculum, we offer art, building, gardening, theater, music, foreign language, mindfulness, emotional maturity, organic farm visits, yoga, physical activity, forest school, cooking, and more.
Core Made Fun
Reading & Writing
Each child will learn at their comprehensive level. Our core teacher will work with different age groups as well as have the children engage in cooperative learning and teaching. We incorporate multilayer learning with writing and reading throughout the entire curriculum. First instance, while making a history book for the lesson, they are creatively learning writing, history, art, and reading all in one!
We encourage math to be fun. Playing games that involve counting, working with angles, and tape measures while learning to build is an included activity. Different math methodology is included to correlate with age levels.
Science is offered at different times of the year. We love experiments, growing things, and we also have a microscope.
History will come alive in our outdoor theatre! Not only will they learn historical events, the children will design their own history books, create plays, and act out history.
Encouraging Creativity Indoors & Outdoors
Art & Design
Art is incorporated into multiple subjects. Waldorf-inspired art will be in fine motor skills, science, history, and even math. For instance, if they are learning the history of Native Americans, they will create, draw, and write a book on the historical events describing what happened. They will then share the book. Next, the children will create a play on the events. We also offer self-expression art on Mondays. We have several experienced tutors and teachers. Art is everywhere!
Children learn to build fires, structures from nature. This is cooperative learning and learning the art of teamwork with creativity.
Confidence & Expression
Children will grow their food and often cook with it. They will learn the basics of cooking combined with the importance of nutrition. We are a sugar-free zone! The center takes a holistic view of nutrition. We encourage the kids to learn how to make healthy desserts, spelt bread, and meals!
Spanish with Mariana on the 3-day curriculum. We focus on speaking the language while involved in movement or activities. We encourage speaking alternative languages throughout the day and in the other courses.
