Our Classes

Woodhaven School operates five days a week. We have two classes, divided by age:

Rosebuds (3-4)
Sunflowers (4-6)

Each class has a teacher, assistant teacher, and a parent helper, who facilitate a magical environment where creative, child-driven play is encouraged.


Woodhaven children experience the outdoors every class day, regardless of the weather. Our outdoor classroom is in the woods, where children experience a combination of free play and facilitated activities such as nature walks, games, bug hunts, bird watching and plant identification.

A portion of our outdoor space is a garden, maintained by the children and the parent gardening coordinator. The garden provides many opportunities to observe the natural world.


Woodhaven provides students with healthy, sugar-free, organic foods at snack time. During snacks and lunch, students gather around a large table, creating a cozy, homelike environment. They drink water and use cloth napkins at snack time.

Our school is committed to a waste free lunch program. We ask that parents send low- sugar, nutritious lunches from home with reusable packaging.
