Programs

·      The Pebbles: This class is open to children ages ~4-6 and it is based on the Forest Kindergarten model. The Pebbles class runs from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM with an option for afternoon enrichment until 3:00 or 5:00 PM. The Pebbles explore the natural world through play, hands on exploration, and with guided activities and stories from our experienced teachers.

·      ROCK: The Roots of Connection KIDS program is designed for students ages 6-10. ROCK runs from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM with an option for afternoon enrichment until 5:00 PM. ROCK is a fun and exciting outdoor adventure every day! Whether the students are being challenged to build a fire with no adult help, offered an opportunity to carve a spatula, or taking a break from a hike to play a game, they are having a blast.

·      Wren Watchers: The Wren Watchers program is open to students ages 8 and up, or those who have spent a full school year with Roots of Connection and are approved by Brooke based on readiness. The Wren Watchers program is our most challenging and rigorous course, with a main focus on environmental science, as well as survival skills. We will conduct ecological monitoring studies and contribute our data to national citizen science databases. The Wren Watchers occurs on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, (afternoon enrichment available to 5:00 PM.)

·      Afternoon Enrichment: Available after all programs, from the end of the base program until 3:00 or 5:00 PM. During our afternoon enrichment program, we will explore nature through art, and music. This program takes place at our “Nature Nook” which is located at 4918 Linden Ave. North. Several days a week we will be joined by professional artist Melissa Koch who will guide the students through nature based art projects. Brooke and Niall will lead music, theatre, art, and movement activities that build on the experiences the students have out in the park
