Classes will encourage students to connect within themselves and to the earth, their peers and their parent. Students will have time for exploration, social interaction, and creative/imaginative play with a themed nature study each week. Each class follows a similar rhythm: free play, opening circle with story and music, game, snack, adventure and imaginative play, and closing circle around the fire. As students hike uneven terrain, climb, and balance on stones, they develop gross motor skills. Sharing discoveries and learning from one another develops our sense of community. Come explore with us!
Babies are always welcome at no additional cost. This is a parent/child course- parents, guardians, or caretakers are expected to attend class with their child to learn and grow together.
** Classes March 31-May 20 are scheduled at Little Pine Island Camp. LPI is still in the process of deciding their summer camp plans. If summer camp happens, we will find a second location for the last three weeks of class. This backup plan is in process at a few different locations in the West Michigan area, but not finalized. I’m sorry for the uncertainty this provides while you are considering enrollment for Spring. For questions or updated information, please contact the Director, Chelsea Eerkes. Thank you for your flexibility as we navigate this world with so many uncertainties.
