We LOVE music - especially in the Outdoor Classroom! By adding things like this, the children learn that music can be made by anything.. not just from instruments!

 

            

We are so thrilled to have Science as part of our curriculum this year! Ms. Jennie meets each class outside in the Outdoor Classroom once a week to share age appropriate science concepts. This special science class allows your child to explore their senses and develop an awareness of the world God created. It allows them to explore questions, experiment, discover truths, and form ideas. It stimulates conversation and provides moments of awe and wonder!
