Take Root, as a learning community, uses an ALL-OUTDOOR, PLACE-BASED approach to learning – focusing on exploration, play and discovery. Families join the community to participate in classes that will enrich their homeschooling curriculum. All classes take place outdoors and are implemented using holistic methodologies. The subjects, such as, language arts, cultural studies and history, science and mathematics, place-based ecology and stewardship, are woven into the forest school flow – emphasizing the rhythm of the seasons, sensory awareness and the forest kids’ discoveries in the forest. This model allows for development of the whole child…Head (through transformative experience and reflection), Heart (through relating) & Hands (through engagement).
