Between each organized activity, children will have ample free time to explore the farm, play with other children and spend time in their own thoughts. We understand that education fits best when it's coupled with freedom and the ability to weave it into the tapestry of your own timeline.
In addition to daily farm responsibilities, each child will alternate between being on cleanup crew & lunch crew. We'll also include some fun trust building exercises and confidence boosting games.
