The purpose of the group is to gather a group of like-minded parents who want more out of their child's first school experience (an alternative to academic preschool). If you are interested in allowing your child to learn in developmentally appropriate ways in a loving, nurturing environment....come check our group out! Your child's first school experience should be a positive one where the child feels loved and accepted. Home schoolers/un-schoolers and everyone welcome!
NLA offers programs for everyone: Toddlers 12 months-2 years, Mixed-age 2 1/2-5 years (some stay in this group longer), Homeschool enrichment Wednesday Explorers ages 5 (no exceptions)-8 years, Homeschool enrichment Friday classes (variety of 8 week classes), as well as Parent Chat/Toolbox meetings! Our HS Explorer classes and other enrichment classes (drop-off programs) are offered at the same time as our Mixed-age Preschool age classes so that parents can remain on the same "campus" with their younger children!
Some of the activities we offer are nature exploration, gardening, building with different materials, sensory activities, imaginary play, music, reading, science experiments and lots of creative art! The child has the freedom to choose and engage in whatever they want each day. We rent a beautiful space with tree filled playgrounds, an indoor classroom and a community garden. Come and check us out! RSVP and let me know you are coming...we'd love to have you! Email Joy with questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
