Both locations meet 33 weeks a year, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
The day program is an all-day, part-time program where their kids can be academically and socially engaged, and inspired to take ownership of their learning. The Villager Day-Program launched in 2016 and is a two-day option. Please note, this is NOT designed to be a comprehensive program --- it is part-time only.

1. Cultivate the learner's natural desire to learn.2. Build self-awareness and awareness of the world around them.3. Provide opportunity for meaningful social interaction and community.4. Build learning skills.5. Engage in individual and group inquiry-based learning.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
Each day will have a schedule that includes some free exploration time, some guided group learning opportunities, some individualized online learning, group project-based learning, and some independent work. We maintain our commitment to making learning fun and engaging, while also holding a high expectation for participation.
We are applying over 13 years of experience with facilitating learning engagement to design this program to be a learner-friendly approach to education, with developmentally appropriate academic and social opportunities that support learner autonomy.
For the three weeks outside of the regular terms of Village Home, the day-program students will participate in a workshop immersion, engage in community service, and prepare for a project presentation.

WHO IS THE DAY PROGRAM FOR?
Families who value high quality educational opportunities as much as learner autonomy, and who are seeking academic and social enrichment on a part-time basis for their children. In the Village Day program, the parent is still seen as the student's primary educator. Because this is a cohort-based program, learners in the program need to be functioning academically, socially, and emotionally at or above their grade level.
