K-2 Half-Day Nature School Program

The Eastern Ridge School is considering offering a part-time program for children in grades K-2 this fall. The program would focus on connecting children with the natural world, fostering social growth, and developing critical thinking skills. Art, science, language arts, and math would be woven into the activities; for example, children might keep nature journals, create and follow maps, and study wildlife and seasonal changes.

The program would run for 1, 2, or 3 half-days and would meet in a local nature park in the vicinity of Wolf Trap. Tentatively, the hours would be from 9am-2pm.
