Application for Fall Program 2020 at Debs Park
Welcome to the application process for our program at Kenneth Hahn Park for children ages 3-5 years and 6-9 years. Besides learning about the native landscape by engaging all the sense, children building friendships, develop cooperation skills, learn to communicate their needs and wants, creatively express their ideas and build executive function skills as they need to make independent choices. We plan creative activities throughout the year including literacy, math, art and science. Children adventure in unstructured playing, go hiking, and receive all the benefits of being outdoors in nature. Older children will be actively engaged in leading their personal learning experience under the guidance of the teacher. Group size will be 10, max. 12 children with a 1:4 teacher child ratio.
