PARENTING WORKSHOPS

It takes a village to raise a child. 

We've all heard this but how many of us have such resources of community support as we tend to our children. 

The programs and workshops offered here are aiming to serve as a one of those resources. Connecting parents and their families to their authentic style of raising our kids, immersed in nature and with much less stress. 

Group Sessions or One on One support can be custom created with one or many of the topics listed:

- Helicopter vs. Hummingbird:

  how to give your kids space while staying present

- Forest School Families:

how to support your child's exploration of  the natural world 

- Emergent Curriculum: 

a guide to authentic education and what it means to 'unschool'
