In the fall Side by Side will begin its very first Parents Day Out Program for children ages 3-5 years.
The Whole Child will honor mind, body, and spirit while incorporating nature, art, community, and movement into its everyday child led programming.🌿
Please join us for an open house to discover and explore our indoor and outdoor classroom and studio spaces. The spaces will be set up as they would look on a typical day of learning, which means that you and your family will have the opportunity to create and make while you are here visiting!
Open House Time: Monday, July 17th, 5:00PM-7:00pm
The Parents Day Out Program will meet every Monday and Wednesday from 9:00-Noon beginning September 6th.
Mission of the Whole Child:
The mission of The Whole Child is to provide children with stimulating nature-centered opportunities to encourage artistic self-expression, independent problem solving, and a never-ending curiosity towards life.
Children will freely explore their natural world, therefore inviting new experiences every day and allowing the child to become a leader on their own learning path. Through these experiences, children will learn compassion not only towards their friends, but also towards the Earth and themselves.
The Whole Child encompasses all aspects of a child’s well-being – mind, body, heart, and soul.
Inspired by Reggio, Steiner, and Warden philosophies, children will spend a majority of their time outdoors in Earth’s classroom. Our daily rhythm will include time for creative play, loose parts invitations, yoga, stories, art discovery, and more. Our commitment in viewing children as competent and capable learners promotes a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere where children can recognize and reach their full potential.
