Homeschool Classes: Full Year 2019-2020
Join us for 1, 2 or 3 days a week! Our classes are drop-off and open to children who are involved in home school or flex school programs. This mixed-aged group is open to children ages 3-8.
Our homeschool classes offer kids exploratory, independent nature education with an emphasis on social-emotional development that our standard morning classes offer, but with a little extra.
Since our homeschool classes serve older children, we are able to take the fundamentals of our place-based, inquiry-centered nature learning to deeper levels with activities such as: map-reading and making, bird watching and identifying, learning about conservation, constructing simple machines like pulleys and wedges, nature journaling, studying the native people who once inhabited the park, and creating large-scale art projects using materials from nature.
Our classes are child-directed and are led by our teachers with gentle guidance, warmth, and humor as the group navigates and explores Prospect Park together. Our teachers are researchers of the children’s ideas and are there to support them and ask scientific questions as the kiddos implement their own education plans.
