Where the Wild Things Are StoryWalk in the forest

Parents’ Morning Out at the Wildflower School offers parents of children ages 12-30 months the chance to have a few hours each week to relax, run errands or even practice a little self-care! Our program runs in 6-week sessions (with some 4-week sessions due to holiday breaks) beginning October 1, 2019. The session dates are:

  1. October 1-November 7 ($288/session)

  2. November 12-December 19 (no class Thursday Nov 28) ($288/session)

  3. January 7-February 13 ($288/session)

  4. February 18-March 12 (4-week session only) ($192/session)

  5. March 24-April 30 ($288/session)

  6. May 5-May 28 (4-week session only) ($192/session)

 

Each week, the program operates on Tuesday & Thursday from 9:00am-12:00pm. We offer 2-day options only. Families are more than welcome to join the preschool children for lunch (usually begins around 12pm). Preschool families often stay for quite some time playing on the playground, feeding the animals, hiking in the forest or taking in a StoryWalk. Feel free to bring a blanket & picnic and enjoy the Wildflower Community. We simply ask that families leave by 3pm to allow Shelley to pick her own children up from school.

 

Each day, we offer snack for the children, often from our own gardens (during the winter, we grow in our greenhouse). The children will have the opportunity to explore our farm, forest and school house (an 1800 square foot shipping container creation!). Water and light play, art, time with baby chicks, bunnies and goats, sandbox play, movement and music are just a few of the explorations your child will get to enjoy on our 16-acre farm and forest.

 

We have a toddler garden for children in our PMO program built just the right size for our friends experimenting with crawling and walking. Microgreens are a terrific way to introduce young children to gardening: they taste great, are very small and grown in just 10-14 days! We make extensive use of grow lights for our winter gardens indoors as well.

Our ratio for the PMO program is 5:1. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to hold your child’s spot for each session. Parents already enrolled in a session are given priority for enrollment in subsequent sessions. Scroll down for the PMO enrollment form.
