NURSERY Our nursery program serves children from 6 weeks old to 2 years old. We are play-based with an emphasis on outdoor exploration, sensory experiences, and the arts. Our nursery program is fully licensed by the state of Vermont.
PRESCHOOL & PRIMARY Our preschool & pre-k program serves children from 2 to 6 years old. We are predominantly play-based and focus on teaching and supporting social-emotional skills as well as experiences which immerse children in the natural world. We nurture the natural curiosity, wonder, and community-orientation of children in a multi-age and multi-environment setting. Our program is fully licensed by the state of Vermont.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL & MIDDLE SCHOOL We are currently working on rebuilding our elementary and middle school programs, which will serve students from ages 7-14. We currently serve Kindergarten-aged students in our Primary program. Teachers work with mixed-age classrooms grouped according to abilities for most academic activities. Classrooms may be located in the Neighborhood Schoolhouse building, the forest, the playground, or the yurt. We are a state-recognized independent school.
