AFTER SCHOOL ADVENTURES (Thu. 20 Sep, 2018 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

HV Photo

Back to School?...Back to Hidden Villa!

For Grades K – 6

1 class per week for 11 weeks: Thursdays, or Fridays  

September 20 to December 7  

After a full day of school, give your child the chance to spend their afternoons exploring Hidden Villa’s farm and wilderness. Our education staff will help students self-direct their learning as they work in small groups  to engage with our farm animals, observe wild critters, take hikes through the forest, discover native plants, cultivate their green thumbs, and express their creativity and curiosity in a natural setting. Through inquiry-based learning, this program will reinforce the new Next Generation Science Standards used in most classrooms and feel more like play than instruction. Your children will come home from Hidden Villa full of fresh air and more closely connected to our natural world of wonder.

Transportation to and from Hidden Villa must be arranged by the child’s caregiver.

For more details and registration, please visit After School Programs

Fee: 350/child
