*Changes to the program will occur as health conditions improve.
In Seedlings, hands-on sensory experiences in Play, Nature and the Arts (think melting crayons, befriending worms and building moats in the sand) spark passion, grow confidence and encourage curiosity – skills that serve children well in their future academic lives.
But life isn’t all about academics… In this mixed-age environment, children also learn skills that help them lead more meaningful, connected lives out in the world. Skills like creative problem solving, conflict resolution, communication, empathy and respect for others. The element that ties everything together is community. Seedlings students and parents form the heart of the Sunflower community, supporting each other in learning and in life.
Children attend five days a week, either for a morning or an afternoon session. Seedlings is a drop-off program with a parent cooperative component. Although parents are unable to help onsite at this time, they can support with various helper jobs offsite. Parent co-op responsibilities are 2-4 hours a month, depending on the programs needs.
