Early Explorations through First Grade


“…Rebecca gave our boys focused attention, respect, freedom with boundaries, and the powerful presence of joyful shared learning and wonder.” -Jennifer,  enrolled 2004-2008”

What we Offer

We offer a small contemplative, nature and arts based early childhood program for children ages 2.5 to 7 years.   Our program is grounded in  nature and arts immersion and project work and is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to education.  We value mixed age groups, and children learning along with others 2-4 years older or younger.  This program is offered in our family home in Mclean, VA. The group size is typically 7-9 children.

Children age 6 and older are part of our homeschool enrichment and co-op, and learn in partnership with their families.

Our model is truly a year round school.  However, we offer the option of traditional school year scheduling for the convenience of families.  We highly recommend for families to commit to 4-8 weeks in the summer for a full and deep experience.
