FULL TIME CHILD CARE
Ages 12 months - Kindergarten
We offer full time care from 6am to 6pm Mon-Fri for children ages 12 months through kindergarten. Our program is unique in that we are able to make use of the whole 23 acre farm facility to enhance our curriculum. Classes will take turns visiting the farm on a regular basis to develop an understanding of and connection to the seasons and cycles of the year at the farm. We offer a reliable, consistent, and rewarding day care experience. Together, we will snack from the garden, find natural mysteries on our hikes in the forest, and dig deeper into farm chores, animal care, and the natural sciences in the back yard, the barnyard, and beyond!
In our child care classrooms we strive to develop a strong sense of community in which children are placed at the center of all that we do. We believe that encouraging youth voice and following the children’s natural curiosity will allow for relevant experiences that can deepen a child’s connection to the world around them.
BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE
For school age children
While we don't have time after school and before parent pick up to actually visit the farm regularly we integrate opportunities for outdoor learning on-site through caring for the center's resident animals, growing both vegetables and flowers in our gardens, and observing and learning about local urban wildlife.
