GRADES HOMESCHOOL ENRICHMENT
Wild Oak Homeschool Enrichment Program for Grades 1 through 8 offers interdisciplinary classes that include:
Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Foreign Language, Handwork, Physical Education, and Outdoor Education
Each day begins with games before the children gather in the stump circle to set their intentions for the day. They begin the day with a Main Lesson before breaking for snack and movement, exploring our beautiful 35 acres of natural space. Art is an integral part of the rich Waldorf curriculum from which the teachers draw their inspiration for the day. The children begin their day at 9:00am and finish at 1:30pm. Additionally, we offer Extension from 1:30 - 3:00pm for those that need a longer day.
2018-2019 Enrichment Classes
Ages 6 - 8: How am I one with the World? How is the World a beautiful place?
Ages 9 - 11: How do we live on the land and in our bodies? I am steward of the World around me.
