Do you ever wonder if you're doing the right thing by sending your child to a play based school – one where the children spend the vast majority of their morning outside? If so read on:

Our newest Outdoor School - ROCK! (Roots of Connection, Kids!) is hosting an open house on Wednesday, August 3rd from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
We will gather at Woodland Park in the meadow next to shelter #1.
This new outdoor school will be hosting both preschool children ages four and five, and homeschooling children ages six through 12 years.
Here is the schedule of the afternoon:
2:00 Arrival at Woodland Park. Our lead teacher, Brooke, will have a small game going that kids can easily join in and play. Tara, our Director, will welcome and greet parents at this time. Think of one thing you love about nature and feel free to share that with us.
2:20 Gather all parents and kids and have a brief welcoming/introduction circle.
2:30 Kids join Brooke for an adventure within view of the parents. Tara hosts a question and answer time for parents. Parents observe the kid's adventure.
4:00 Kids return from adventure and share stories of what they did, experienced, learned. This part includes parents as listeners of the kids stories.
4:15 The whole group walks back from Woodland Park to Linden. Brooke will model things like how we will cross the street together, etc. for parents to get a sense of how that transition will go.
4:30 Arrival back at Linden for a cool tour of the nature nook, and some light refreshments.
Open house ends at 5:00PM.
Please help us to spread the word about this fabulous program.
Hope to see you soon.
Tara and Brooke.
