ROOTS OF CONNECTION is an OUTDOOR MULTI-AGE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM at our Linden location. The class spends each day exploring nature in Woodland Park and then returns to the Linden location for a hot lunch. Roots of Connection is accepting enrollment for preschoolers ages 4-5 years of age. Additionally, we are offering a homeschool enrichment program for learners ages 6-12.
The Wren Watchers is a new homeschool enrichment class for ages 8 and up. Curriculum will include advanced Wilderness Survival Skills, Ecological Monitoring, and much much more! During our preview day, families are invited to join us for a sample of Roots of Connection programs. During this fun event, kids will be invited to join games and a brief nature adventure, and parents will be provided with information about the curriculum and educational philosophies of our school. This is a great chance to ask questions, meet teachers, and get to know Roots of Connection in depth.
