We had terrific feedback from our Summer programs, and are looking forward to sharing more outdoor programing with you throughout the Fall.

We are doing our best to ensure parents, students, and our staff feel confidant that we will be sharing a safe learning environment, we are doing this by keeping many of our safety methods in place. We need to work together to keep these protocols effective, so please review our updated safety protocols that will be observed during our summer programs.

Librarians and Leaves:
Stories & Activities

We have invited two local librarians to visit the farm this fall and read a book or two with a farm theme and a nature theme. This will take place outside, in a COVID safe environment that allows for social distancing. We will follow up with a short activity on the property that correlates to the theme of the book read.
