Our Roots & Wings outdoor nature program allows children ages 4 to 6 to have fun and explore the natural world around them. Through nature activities for kids, including songs, stories, walks, and plant and animal observation, we plant seeds for children’s growth and connection with nature. Students can register for one or both days. Please Note: The price listed is for either Wednesdays or Fridays.

You have a choice of doing Roots and Wings on Wednesdays and/or Fridays. We are excited about this option as it will allow for smaller overall class size (~14 students per day with 2 Lead instructors and 1-2 Apprentice instructors). 

The curriculum includes:

  • Circle time with songs and stories
  • Nature walks
  • Nature awareness games
  • Plant and animal awareness
  • Sensory awareness
  • Nature skills

Our educational philosophy focuses on:

  • Creating a safe environment in which children can plan and explore their world
  • Providing fun, hands-on opportunities for children to learn
  • Adaptability so that the programs match the energy of the group during a particular session
  • Mentoring delivered by instructors with experience working with children in this age group
  • Using our widely-respected educational philosophy, we encourage creative thinking rather than simply providing answers. Our goal is to help students develop problem-solving skills and self-sufficiency, fostering a deeper level of learning and connection.

Our instructional staff includes

  • Experienced instructors
  • Apprentices who offer additional instructor support
  • A targeted 1:7 adult to student ratio
  • Staff trained as Coyote Mentors
  • Compassionate educators who encourage each child’s respect for self, others and nature
  • Experienced Wilderness First Aid and CPR certified professionals
