Classes Overview

Our classes are divided into age groups, each group having children with birthdays within a couple of years of each other. While each class will engage in similar activities, our curriculum is structured so that each age group will be provided developmentally appropriate materials at the right time and presented in a lively way.

AGES 5 AND 6 (THE WILLOWS CLASS)

In this age group we use the “Three R’s” (Reverence, Rhythm and Repetition) to give the children a sense of security and confidence to and participate in the activities around them.

AGES 7 AND 8

Children in this age group see the world as good vs. bad. Children are able to explore their feelings and understanding of these ideas through Fairy Tales and Nature Stories.

AGES 9 AND 10

Children at these ages are beginning to leave the dreamy world of earlier childhood. They are learning many new skills as they engage more fully and actively in their thinking, feeling and willing.

AGES 11 and 12

At this age, the children’s image of the world begins to find a new balance, as reasoning begins to emerge as a complement to feeling. The class studies the culture and myths of classical Greece and other ancient Asian and Middle Eastern civilizations, as their wisdom mirrors the exponential growth in the children’s overall ability and perceptive power.

AGES 13 AND 14

The “senior” class takes up studies of the Roman Empire, Middle Ages and Renaissance. Hearing biographies of such personalities as Julius Caesar, Leonardo da Vinci, and Shakespeare, the children experience the radical transformation of culture and consciousness represented by the events in these remarkable people’s lives. No less revolutionary are the changes happening in their own lives as they look toward adulthood.
