Nature Homeschool Programs

homeschool_girl_reading_natureAt Living Earth School, Nature is our classroom and our skilled nature mentors are the guides.  You won’t find another program like ours out there.  A lot of programs talk about nature connection, but don’t always leave the student feeling deeply connected and engaged with nature. We have found that our outdoor classroom really makes learning real and goes far beyond information learning, but gives students the direct experience of seeing and knowing things first hand, all in a community setting.  This form of education (we call “deep nature connection”) takes learning to a whole new level.

We offer our Nature Studies weekly programs, Spring and Fall in Charlottesville for ages 8-18 and in Goochland for ages 8-15.  Below you will find our 2018 dates and details.
