Spending time in nature is as essential to early childhood as growing food and naptime! In our Little Larks class, we gently introduce young ones to life on a small family farm, including tending for the smaller animals that live here and helping the garden to grow. No matter the weather, we tramp out each morning to explore. Storytime captivates our imagination and in circle, we stretch, bend, jump, sing and engage our whole body as we rustle up our appetite!

Discover the adventure of living on a small farmstead! Old fashioned know-how is becoming increasingly important - we feel strongly about equipping ourselves and the next generation with the tools of self-reliance. Our weekly routine begins with a visit to the sheep, goats, chickens, and bunnies to tend to their daily needs. We then break for a snack and spend an hour or so on a project - gardening, doing chemistry experiments or creating artistic and practical items. The schedule is loosely created with room for the flexibility that is needed with the often unpredictable nature of farming and animal husbandry.

Explore the farm, meet the sheep and learn about the life of a shepherd. There are about 70-100 sheep of various colors, sizes and varieties on this farm depending on the season! Our small flock of “woolies” are the perfect lambassadors for you to get to know sheep and lambs. We will also see how their wool is processed and we’ll use some wool for some fun projects! Drop off or mommy/daddy & me.
