Firefly Forest Kindergarten Class offers nature based, hands on learning which fosters discoveries that integrate Science, Math, Literacy, and the Arts. We offer a kind & cooperative learning environment that instills values of environmental stewardship & love for the natural world and all it’s gifts. We are a small Family owned and operated community nature school. We offer wonderfully low class ratios far below the industry standards. Our low ratios demonstrate our school’s commitment to each child’s safety, happiness & education.
The Problem with Traditional schools
They’re all working from the same basic blueprint. Every “classroom” is the pretty much the same with very little differentiation.
Children spend many years in formal schooling where they will be required to sit still, be quiet, walk in straight lines, be taught
what to learn not how to learn. They wait patiently and suffer frustration from being cooped up spending their entire day indoors.
Traditional schools are still teaching the same old antiquated model of:
Fight every instinct you have to be active and social
Get used to learning what we decide & doing what we command
Begin learning to stay at your little desk for your own good.
Has this ever been good for children?
Does it inspire creative learning or new discoveries?
Does it teach children to love learning or does it just break a child’s spirit?
