Roots of Connection

Roots Of Connection, Kids! (ROCK) offers a forest preschool program in beautiful Woodland Park, as well as a multi-age Homeschool Enrichment program.

ROCK! (Roots Of Connection, Kids!) is an OUTDOOR MULTI-AGE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM offered through Tara's Tots schools. The class spends each day exploring nature in Woodland Park and then returns to our Linden home for a healthy, vegetarian hot lunch. ROCK! is accepting enrollment for preschoolers 4-5 years of age. Additionally, we are offering an outdoor homeschool enrichment program for learners ages 6-12 on Wednesdays and Fridays. Students will learn about local ecology, edible and medicinal plants, animal tracking, fire making, shelter building, and conservation within a supportive, multi-age community. Our curriculum focuses on the interests of our students, and is interactive and fun! For more information, visit our webpage, or contact Tara's Tots. Program opens Autumn 2016.
