The Greenwood Tree Homeschool Enrichment Program (Grade 2, 3, and 4) is a Waldorf–inspired learning environment for grade school-aged children that offers holistic instruction in a multi-age setting to enhance the education children receive at home.
We provide nurturing and inspiring opportunities for children to engage with other homeschoolers.
We explore a wide range of academic subjects and artistic work while creating intimate friendships, and building connections to the greater community. We strive to engage the whole child– head, heart, and hands– with a focus on experiential education that supports a child’s innate desire to learn in every moment and in every situation while maintaining a sense of wonder for the world around them.
The students’ daily rhythm consists of circle and sharing time, main lesson, singing, musical instrument instruction, modeling and sculpting, watercolor painting, cooking, baking, drama, handwork and seasonal activities. Daily and seasonal rhythms are connected to nature and we take time every day to experience it by playing or walking outside, regardless of the weather.
