Woodhaven School operates five days a week, 9 am – 4 pm. We have three classes, divided by age:
Forest Friends (5-6)
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 significant part of our outdoor space is a large garden, maintained by the children and the parent gardening coordinator (learn more about parent jobs here). 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 purified water from mugs and use cloth napkins, real silverware, plates and bowls.
Our school is committed to a waste free lunch program. We ask that parents send low- sugar, nutritious lunches from home with reusable packaging.
