Children will be received each morning with a circle to greet the day and honor the land and animals of which we will tend.
We will spend our days honoring the rhythms of nature and of the heart. Through song and story and Waldorf methods, academic exploration will co-exist with our connection to our natural world.
One or two days a week will be dedicated to an all day outdoor excursion, exploring the beautiful forests of which we graciously call home.
Wild Acorns honors and acknowledges that we humbly reside on the territories of the Nisenan people. We aim to guide our children towards a deep understanding of the past and present relations of the Nisenan to these lands and waters.
Costs of running our program in a resourced and responsible way for the children's highest benefit as well as compensating our instructors on a sustainable living wage is very important to us.
$1100 is our monthly fee.
Willing and able families will be asked to pay in 3 seasonal installments. Upon acceptance, 33% of the first month will be a required deposit to secure your position for fall.
We are committed to encouraging all families to apply regardless of financial capacities. Special arrangements can be made on a case by case basis.
