Preschoolers on the Farm (PreK)

Bury your hands in sheep wool, throw corn to the chickens, and more! There is so much to discover on the farm; we ask your child the questions and they discover the answers in this fun weekly class just for the preschool set. This is a 3-Part Series class for children and their caretaker, offered periodically throughout the year.

After School Adventures (K - 6th grade)

Hidden Villa's farm and natural environment is always changing! After School Adventures (ASA) inspires children to connect deeply to the outdoors through a full season of rain-or-shine exploration of Hidden Villa. Children spend their afternoons taking hikes through the forest, engaging with our farm animals, observing wild critters, discovering native plants, cultivating their green thumbs, and expressing their creativity and curiosity in a natural setting. Through inquiry-based learning, this program reinforces the Next Generation Science Standards used in most classrooms and feels more like play than instruction.  Check out our program poster here and share it with friends!
