Our 6 year old is excited to start 1st grade. She is ready to learn, do activities, read and write.

“Our approach is compassionate and student-centered because we believe that children are sensitive and intelligent and that learning can be joyfully integrated into life.”

Oak Meadow About Us

We feel that learning through nature and the world around her will help her develop more and influence her to learn through doing.

We make photocopies of books to write or have a separate notebook for writing the answers so we can use them for our other students. So what did we decide to utilize?
