The Lantern School offers homeschooled children an opportunity to be a part of a community that emphasizes learning through a connection to the natural world and socialization through play.
Small class size (no more than 10 students and two teachers) is just one way that children receive education focused on their unique needs.
When focusing on core academics, our mixed age group (5-9 year olds) is broken down in smaller skill-based learning groups. Students are presented with skill-appropriate materials and can learn and excel at their own pace.
The Waldorf-inspired curriculum moves the children through a predictable daily rhythm that includes academics (Math, language arts, social studies, science) and handwork, and music.
For the 2021/2022 school year, the program will meet on a piece of land in Slaterville Springs, called Frosty Hollow. Here we will have 23 acres to explore, including ponds, streams, apple orchards and woods. A Tiny House on Wheels will serve as our home base, along with other shelters for inclement weather. COVID 19 protocols will be adhered to including mask wearing when in an inside space together.
School meets from 9 am – 3 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.
