Fall 2022 - Spring 2023 Day School
 

Due to the Pandemic, we reserve the right to require all students and adults to wear masks, adhere to extra safety measures, and social distancing while on campus if we deem it necessary. We will make the call on whether or not to mask based on the CDC, medical guidelines, and the number of positive covid cases in the community. 

Sprouts, ages 5 to 7

September 1, 2022 to April 27, 2023, 9am to 2pm

$660 per semester or 4 monthly payments of $165 (plus $45 Non-Refundable Registration Fee and

$75 Non-Refundable Supply Fee per semester)

Children ages 5 to 7, will study a combination of Kindergarten and First Grade using a

Montessori base with a Lively Arts, mindfulness, and inclusivity influenced curriculum. We aim

to educate the whole child: their mind, body, and heart.

During their day the students will spend most of their time with their main teacher exploring

Circle Time/Story Time, Literature, Poetry, Writing, Math, Spelling, Show and Tell, and Art. They

will also participate in Music Class and Gardening/Nature Studies classes with our those

teachers during the day.

As part of their Language Arts lessons the teacher will read, explore, and enact stories with

them each week which will be based on Historical Figures, current Holidays, animals, themes of

kindness and mindfulness, science, nature, or seasonal occasions. Students will then create an

artistic depiction of the story through drawing or painting. During this time, students will also

practice writing and spelling.

Math instruction will include a story component as well as focusing on learning about the 

four processes of math — addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will also be

introduced to Roman numerals. Math will be very hands-on and include multiple learning

techniques and activities.

Three to four snack times, and outdoor times, will be included in the day so that students have a natural balance of active play time and time to quietly focus. (PLEASE NOTE:  WE ARE A NUT FREE FACILITY!Part of our outdoor time will be free play, and the other part will be focused on nature studies in Gardening Class where students will be exposed to topics such as the four seasons, insect studies, nature crafts and more.

Saplings, ages 9 to11 - Class Full - Wait List Only

MUSIC ENRICHMENT: Through movement, mindfulness, music, and breath we will

come together to explore rhythms, cultures, and music history through the art of music.

The students will learn the basics of rhythm and proper technique, study the basis of music

theory, and its applications, as well as music history of different cultures and time periods. 

There will be a performance for families and friends at the end of the semester that will

showcase all the students have learned together. We hope you will join us for it.

GARDENING & NATURE STUDIES: Students will study a variety of plants, incests, vertebrates, 

and invertebrates that are native to Florida. They will learn how our ecosystem works to support

all of the living beings that reside within it. They will be keeping a natural journal to help further 

their studies and enhance their knowledge of the natural world around them.

LEGO CHALLENGE:  LEGO bricks are the perfect intersection of the freedom of creativity and

strictures of engineering.  In this class, students will be challenged to design and create unique

LEGO builds given various conditions, stipulations, and restrictions.  For instance, can students

build their favorite meal accurately enough for the rest of us to guess it?  Who can build the

tallest tower within a 6x6 area?  Can they make a balloon-powered LEGO car drive itself across

the classroom?  In addition, throughout the year, students will learn and work with the

Engineering Design Process and see how it can help them turn their imagination into reality.

EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE: From rocks to clouds to sparkling stars in the sky, Earth and Space Science is the study of the marvels and mysteries of the seemingly-ordinary.  This year, students will journey from the deepest parts of the Earth under our feet to the distant galaxies billions of light-years away.  On Earth, they will learn what gives us days, seasons, and years; why rocks are a window to the past; how water moves below, on, and above the Earth’s surface; the invisible reasons behind weather; and more.  When we turn our eyes to the night sky, students will journey through our solar system and beyond, touring planets, asteroids, comets, stars, and galaxies.

ART STUDIO: Students will be introduced to specific skills, materials, and inspiring artists, and then given some freedom of choice to create their own art using what they have learned.  The focus during this studio time is on the creative process, and on making choices with intention and confidence.  

Three snack times, and outdoor times, will be included throughout the day so that students have a natural balance of active play time and time to quietly focus. (PLEASE NOTE:  WE ARE A NUT FREE FACILITY!)

Red Maples, ages 11 to 14

EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE: 

From rocks to clouds to sparkling stars in the sky, Earth and Space Science is the study of the

marvels and mysteries of the seemingly-ordinary.  This year, students will journey from the

deepest parts of the Earth under our feet to the distant galaxies billions of light-years away. 

On Earth, they will learn what gives us days, seasons, and years; why rocks are a window to the

past; how water moves below, on, and above the Earth’s surface; the invisible reasons behind

weather; and more.  When we turn our eyes to the night sky, students will journey through our

solar system and beyond, touring planets, asteroids, comets, stars, and galaxies.  

 

This class will use the textbook “Science Explorer: Earth Science” by Pearson as a spine, which

will be provided by the school. 

**Students will have required homework assignments each week, geared to their ability level.**

GARDENING & HERBALISM: Students will study a variety of plants, incests, vertebrates, 

and invertebrates that are native to Florida. They will learn how our ecosystem works to support all of the living beings that reside within it. They will be keeping a natural journal to help further their studies and enhance their knowledge of the natural world around them. Students will also learn how certain plants can be beneficial to aid in first aid, skin care, and health. 

**Students should expect to have some homework in this class, ranging from nature walks and working in their nature journals to researching plants and experimenting with herbalism. 

ENGINEERING WITH LEGO : LEGO bricks are the perfect intersection of the freedom of creativity and strictures of engineering.  In this class, students will work with the LEGO Education BricQ Motion Prime set and an assortment of loose LEGO to meet various challenges and obstacles posed to them.  The course will incorporate LEGO Education’s Science of Sports curriculum, which explores physical science (forces, motion, and interactions) within a sports context using LEGO bricks.  Once that foundation has been set, students will move on to more complex builds and challenges.  The class will work to teach students to let their imaginations range while grounding their creations in reality.

ART STUDIO: Students will be introduced to a variety of art materials, techniques, and inspiring artwork.  They will be encouraged to think like an artist and become more comfortable with the creative process.  By alternating between learning technique and having space to experiment, students will gain confidence to make their own creative choices.  

**Students should expect to have homework each week. There will be some creative exercises to be done at home, as well as some drawing practice.

Three snack times, and outdoor times, will be included throughout the day so that students have a natural balance of active play time and time to quietly focus. (PLEASE NOTE:  WE ARE A NUT FREE FACILITY!)
