Owlets Mixed Age Kindergarten

For Children 4 by May 1st; Children that are 5 by September 1st are eligible for scholarships.

At this age, the child is acting out of imitation, thus they experience a wide range of activities, including handwork, beeswax modeling, coloring, domestic work, watercolor painting, storytelling, puppetry, plant dyeing, woodworking, gardening, singing & creative movement, nature observation, and more, naturally, as they see their teachers engaging in various meaningful activities.

To enhance listening skills, simple songs and games are shared in English as well as foreign languages.  Stories shared help the children to develop the ability to create mental images based on what they are hearing, which lays the groundwork for reading comprehension later on. Most importantly, they are learning how to be within a group – this includes compromise, conflict resolution, negotiation – the skills they will need throughout their lifetime.

Like all of our programs, this class takes place completely outside.

The class adopts a daily, weekly and yearly rhythm, which brings the children great comfort – knowing what to expect and anticipate, so each day becomes known by the activity they do and/or the lunch they eat, for example Monday is “Painting Day, Tuesday is” Handwork Day” and so on.

All snacks are organic; water and herbal teas are offered to drink.

The children  take seasonal field trips, such as Crowley Museum and Nature Center or other Forest Days. A typical day in the Owlets class goes as follows:
